       pam_authtok_store - password management module


       pam_authtok_store provides functionality to the PAM password management stack. It provides
       one function: pam_sm_chauthtok().

       When invoked with flags set to PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK, this module updates the  authentication
       token for the user specified by PAM_USER.

       The  authentication  token  PAM_OLDAUTHTOK  can	be  used to authenticate the user against
       repositories that need updating (NIS, LDAP). After successful updates, the new authentica-
       tion token stored in PAM_AUTHTOK is the user's valid password.

       This  module  honors the PAM_REPOSITORY item, which, if set, specifies which repository is
       to be updated. If PAM_REPOSITORY is unset, it follows the nsswitch.conf(4).

       The following option can be passed to the module:

       debug		syslog(3C) debugging information at the LOG_DEBUG level

       server_policy	If the account authority for the user, as specified  by  PAM_USER,  is	a
			server, do not encrypt the authentication token before updating.

       PAM_SUCCESS	 Successfully obtains authentication token

       PAM_SYSTEM_ERR	 Fails	to get username, service name, old password or new password, user
			 name null or empty, or password null.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Interface Stability	     |Evolving			   |
       |MT Level		     |MT-Safe with exceptions	   |

       pam(3PAM),   pam_authenticate(3PAM),   pam_chauthtok(3PAM),   syslog(3C),    libpam(3LIB),
       pam.conf(4),   attributes(5),   pam_authtok_check(5),  pam_authtok_get(5),  pam_dhkeys(5),
       pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5), pam_unix_auth(5), pam_unix_session(5)

       The interfaces in libpam(3LIB) are MT-Safe only if each thread within  the  multi-threaded
       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_authtok_store(5),	   pam_dhkeys(5),
       pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5), pam_unix_auth(5), and pam_unix_session(5).

       If  the	PAM_REPOSITORY item_type is set and a service module does not recognize the type,
       the service module does not process  any  information,  and  returns  PAM_IGNORE.  If  the
       PAM_REPOSITORY item_type is not set, a service module performs its default action.
