    The Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) library abstracts a number of
    common authentication-related operations and provides a framework for
    dynamically loaded modules that implement these operations in various
    In PAM parlance, the application that uses PAM to authenticate a user is
    the server, and is identified for configuration purposes by a service
    name, which is often (but not necessarily) the program name.
    The user requesting authentication is called the applicant, while the
    user (usually, root) charged with verifying his identity and granting him
    the requested credentials is called the arbitrator.
    The sequence of operations the server goes through to authenticate a user
    and perform whatever task he requested is a PAM transaction; the context
    within which the server performs the requested task is called a session.
    The functionality embodied by PAM is divided into six primitives grouped
    into four facilities: authentication, account management, session manage-
    ment and password management.
    The PAM library expects the application to provide a conversation call-
    back which it can use to communicate with the user.  Some modules may use
    specialized conversation functions to communicate with special hardware
    such as cryptographic dongles or biometric devices.  See pam_conv(3) for
  Initialization and Cleanup
    The pam_start() function initializes the PAM library and returns a handle
    which must be provided in all subsequent function calls.  The transaction
    state is contained entirely within the structure identified by this han-
    dle, so it is possible to conduct multiple transactions in parallel.
    The pam_end() function releases all resources associated with the speci-
    fied context, and can be called at any time to terminate a PAM transac-
    The pam_set_item() and pam_get_item() functions set and retrieve a number
    of predefined items, including the service name, the names of the
    requesting and target users, the conversation function, and prompts.
    The pam_set_data() and pam_get_data() functions manage named chunks of
    free-form data, generally used by modules to store state from one invoca-
    tion to another.
    There are two authentication primitives: pam_authenticate() and
    pam_setcred().  The former authenticates the user, while the latter man-
    ages his credentials.
  Account Management
    The pam_acct_mgmt() function enforces policies such as password expiry,
    account expiry, time-of-day restrictions, and so forth.
  Session Management
    The pam_open_session() and pam_close_session() functions handle session
    setup and teardown.
  Password Management
    The pam_chauthtok() function allows the server to change the user's pass-
    word, either at the user's request or because the password has expired.
    The pam_putenv(), pam_getenv() and pam_getenvlist() functions manage a
    private environment list in which modules can set environment variables
    they want the server to export during the session.
    The pam_strerror() function returns a pointer to a string describing the
    specified PAM error code.


    The following return codes are defined by <security/pam_constants.h>:
    [PAM_ABORT]         General failure.
    [PAM_ACCT_EXPIRED]  User account has expired.
