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_setcred(). 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. ATTRIBUTES

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_auth- tok_store(5), pam_dhkeys(5), pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5), pam_unix_auth(5), and pam_unix_session(5).
