NAME
       pam_rhosts_auth - authentication management PAM module using ruserok()

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1

DESCRIPTION
       The  rhosts  PAM module,  /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1, authenticates a user via
       the rlogin authentication protocol. Only pam_sm_authenticate() is implemented within  this
       module.	pam_sm_authenticate()  uses the ruserok(3SOCKET) library function to authenticate
       the rlogin or rsh user. pam_sm_setcred() is a null function.

       /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1  is  designed  to  be  stacked  on  top	of    the
       /usr/lib/security/pam_unix.so.1	module	for both the rlogin and rsh services. This module
       is normally configured as sufficient so that subsequent authentication is  performed  only
       on failure of pam_sm_authenticate(). The following option may be passed in to this service
       module:

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

       The  interfaces	in   libpam()  are  MT-Safe only if each thread within the multi-threaded
       application uses its own  PAM handle.
