pam_authtok_store - password management module SYNOPSIS DESCRIPTION
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 authentication 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 fol- lows 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. ERRORS
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. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Evolving | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT Level |MT-Safe with exceptions | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
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) 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_auth- tok_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 informa- tion, and returns PAM_IGNORE. If the PAM_REPOSITORY item_type is not set, a service module performs its default action. SunOS 5.10 26 Jan 2004 pam_authtok_store(5)
