libpam - PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module) library SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lpam [ library... ] #include <security/pam_appl.h> DESCRIPTION
Functions in this library provide routines for the Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM). INTERFACES
The shared object provides the public interfaces defined below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object inter- faces. pam_acct_mgmt pam_authenticate pam_chauthtok pam_close_session pam_end pam_get_data pam_get_item pam_get_user pam_getenv pam_getenvlist pam_open_session pam_putenv pam_set_data pam_set_item pam_setcred pam_start pam_strerror FILES

The functions in libpam are MT-Safe only if each thread within the multithreaded application uses its own PAM handle. The pam_unix(5) module is no longer supported. Similar functionality is provided by pam_authtok_check(5), pam_authtok_get(5), pam_auth- tok_store(5), pam_dhkeys(5), pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5), pam_unix_auth(5), and pam_unix_session(5).
