NAME
pam_acct_mgmt - perform PAM account validation procedures SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lpam [ library ... ] #include <security/pam_appl.h> int pam_acct_mgmt(pam_handle_t *pamh, int flags); DESCRIPTION
The pam_acct_mgmt() function is called to determine if the current user's account is valid. It checks for password and account expiration, and verifies access hour restrictions. This function is typically called after the user has been authenticated with pam_authenticate(3PAM). The pamh argument is an authentication handle obtained by a prior call to pam_start(). The following flags may be set in the flags field: PAM_SILENT The account management service should not generate any messages. PAM_DISALLOW_NULL_AUTHTOK The account management service should return PAM_NEW_AUTHTOK_REQD if the user has a null authentication token. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, PAM_SUCCESS is returned. In addition to the error return values described in pam(3PAM), the following values may be returned: PAM_USER_UNKNOWN User not known to underlying account management module. PAM_AUTH_ERR Authentication failure. PAM_NEW_AUTHTOK_REQD New authentication token required. This is normally returned if the machine security policies require that the password should be changed because the password is NULL or has aged. PAM_ACCT_EXPIRED User account has expired. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
pam_setcred - modify or delete user credentials for an authentication service SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lpam [ library ... ] #include <security/pam_appl.h> int pam_setcred(pam_handle_t *pamh, int flags); DESCRIPTION
The pam_setcred() function is used to establish, modify, or delete user credentials. It is typically called after the user has been authen- ticated and after a session has been validated. See pam_authenticate(3PAM) and pam_acct_mgmt(3PAM). The user is specified by a prior call to pam_start() or pam_set_item(), and is referenced by the authentication handle, pamh. The following flags may be set in the flags field. Note that the first four flags are mutually exclusive: PAM_ESTABLISH_CRED Set user credentials for an authentication service. PAM_DELETE_CRED Delete user credentials associated with an authentication service. PAM_REINITIALIZE_CRED Reinitialize user credentials. PAM_REFRESH_CRED Extend lifetime of user credentials. PAM_SILENT Authentication service should not generate any messages. If no flag is set, PAM_ESTABLISH_CRED is used as the default. RETURN VALUES
Upon success, pam_setcred() returns PAM_SUCCESS. In addition to the error return values described in pam(3PAM) the following values may be returned upon error: PAM_CRED_UNAVAIL Underlying authentication service can not retrieve user credentials unavailable. PAM_CRED_EXPIRED User credentials expired. PAM_USER_UNKNOWN User unknown to underlying authentication service. PAM_CRED_ERR Failure setting user credentials. ATTRIBUTES
