       pam_localuser - require users to be listed in /etc/passwd

       account sufficient /lib/security/pam_localuser.so args
       account required /lib/security/pam_wheel.so group=devel

       pam_localuser.so  exists  to help implement site-wide login policies, where they typically
       include a subset of the network's users and a few accounts that are local to a  particular
       workstation.   Using  pam_localuser.so and pam_wheel.so or pam_listfile.so is an effective
       way to restrict access to either local users and/or a subset of the network's users.

       This could also be implemented using pam_listfile.so and a very short awk  script  invoked
       by cron, but it's common enough to have been separated out.

       debug  turns on debugging

	      uses a file other than /etc/passwd.


       Let's  hope  not,  but  if  you	find  any, please report them via the "Bug Track" link at
