Projects / Linux-PAM


Linux-PAM provides a flexible mechanism for authenticating users. It consists of a set of libraries that handle the authentication tasks of applications on the system. The library provides a stable general interface to which privilege-granting programs (such as login and su) defer to perform standard authentication tasks. PAM was invented by SUN Microsystems.
