       pam_unix_session - session management PAM module for UNIX


       The  pam_unix_session  module  implements  pam_sm_open_session(3PAM) and pam_sm_close_ses-

       pam_sm_open_session() updates the /var/adm/lastlog file with the information contained  in
       the  PAM_USER,  PAM_TTY,  and  PAM_RHOSTS  items. pam_unix_account(5) uses this account to
       determine the previous time the user logged in.

       pam_sm_close_session() is a null function.

       The following options can be passed to the module:

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

       Upon successful completion,  PAM_SUCCESS  is  returned.	The  following	error  codes  are
       returned upon error:

       PAM_SESSION_ERR	   Cannot  make or remove the entry for the specified session (PAM_TTY is
			   not present).

       PAM_USER_UNKNOWN    No account is present for user.

       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),   syslog(3C),   libpam(3LIB),    pam.conf(4),    nss-
       witch.conf(4),	 attributes(5),   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),

       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).
