NAME
       pam_dial_auth - authentication management PAM module for dialups

SYNOPSIS
       pam_dial_auth.so.1

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_dial_auth module implements pam_sm_authenticate(3PAM) which authenticates the user
       according to the dialups(4) and d_passwd(4) files configuration.

       Authentication service modules must implement both pam_sm_authenticate()  and  pam_sm_set-
       cred(). pam_sm_setcred() in this module always returns PAM_IGNORE.

       The  value  of  the  PAM_TTY  item is checked against entries in dialups(4). If there is a
       match, the user's shell is compared against entries in d_passwd(4). If there is a matching
       entry, the user is prompted for a password which is validated against the entry found.

       The following option may be passed in to this service module:

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

ERRORS
       If  dialups(4)  is  not	present,  PAM_IGNORE  is  returned. Upon successful completion of
       pam_sm_authenticate(), PAM_SUCCESS is returned. The following  error  codes  are  returned
       upon error:

       PAM_AUTH_ERR	   Authentication failure.

       PAM_SERVICE_ERR	   Error in the calling service, PAM_TTY is not set.

       PAM_SYSTEM_ERR	   System error (d_passwd(4) is not present).

       PAM_USER_UNKNOWN    No account is present for user.

NOTES
       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).
