NAME

pam_unix_session - session management PAM module for UNIX  

SYNOPSIS

pam_unix_session.so.1
 

DESCRIPTION

The pam_unix_session module implements pam_sm_open_session(3PAM) and pam_sm_close_session(3PAM).

pam_sm_open_session() updates the /var/adm/lastlog file with the information contained in the PAM_USER, PAM_TTY, and PAM_RHOSTS items. pam_unix_account(5) uses this account to determine the previous time the user logged in.

pam_sm_close_session() is a null function.

The following options can be passed to the module:

debug syslog(3C) debugging information at the LOG_DEBUG level

 

ERRORS

Upon successful completion, PAM_SUCCESS is returned. The following error codes are returned upon error:

PAM_SESSION_ERR Cannot make or remove the entry for the specified session (PAM_TTY is not present).

PAM_USER_UNKNOWN No account is present for user.

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_authtok_store(5), pam_dhkeys(5), pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5), pam_unix_auth(5), and pam_unix_session(5).
