RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pam_timestamp_check (redhat section 8)

pam_timestamp_check(8)		  System Administrator's Manual 	   pam_timestamp_check(8)

NAME
       pam_timestamp_check - check or clear authentication timestamps

SYNOPSIS
       pam_timestamp [[-d]|[-k]] [target_user]

DESCRIPTION
       With  no  arguments,  pam_timestamp_check  will	check  to see if the default timestamp is
       valid, or optionally remove it.

OPTIONS
       -k     instead of checking the validity of a timestamp, remove it.  This is  analogous  to
	      sudo's -k option.

       -d     Instead of returning validity using an exit status, loop indefinitely, polling reg-
	      ularly and printing the status on standard output.

       target_user
	      The default behavior of pam_timestamp_check checks or removes timestamps	generated
	      by  pam_timestamp  when the user authenticates as herself.  When the user authenti-
	      cates as a different user, the name of the timestamp  file  changes  to  accomodate
	      this.

DIAGNOSTICS
       When  checking  if a timestamp is valid, pam_timestamp_check returns an exit code of 0 for
       success and > 0 on error:

       2: binary is not setuid-root
       3: invalid invocation
       4: user unknown
       5: permissions error
       6: invalid controlling tty
       7: other error

SEE ALSO

       Let's hope not, but if you find any, please email the author.
