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


nowarn
Turn off last login PAM_TEXT_INFO message.


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).
