Projects / authlocal


authlocal is a simple, self-contained program module (Just one file, just one function to call from your code) to automatically authenticate users logging into servers from localhost. No username/password entry is required. authlocal has been tested to work under versions 2.0 - 2.4 of the Linux kernel.
