Projects / pam_userpass


pam_userpass is a PAM module for use specifically by services implementing non-interactive protocols and wishing to verify a username/password pair. It uses Linux-PAM binary prompts to make it possible for applications to no longer make the flawed assumption that PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_ON requests the username and PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_OFF requests the password. It doesn't perform any actual user authentication; that is left up to further modules in the PAM stack (e.g., to pam_tcb or pam_unix).
