PAM_ALLOW(7) Standards, Environments, and Macros PAM_ALLOW(7)

NAME


pam_allow - PAM authentication, account, session and password management
PAM module to allow operations

SYNOPSIS


pam_allow.so.1


DESCRIPTION


The pam_allow module implements all the PAM service module functions and
returns PAM_SUCCESS for all calls. Opposite functionality is available in
the pam_deny(7) module.


Proper authentication operation requires pam_unix_cred(7) be stacked
above pam_allow.


The following options are interpreted:

debug
Provides syslog(3C) debugging information at the LOG_AUTH |
LOG_DEBUG level.


ERRORS


PAM_SUCCESS is always returned.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: Allowing ssh none




The following example is a pam.conf fragment that illustrates a sample
for allowing ssh none authentication:


sshd-none auth required pam_unix_cred.so.1
sshd-none auth sufficient pam_allow.so.1
sshd-none account sufficient pam_allow.so.1
sshd-none session sufficient pam_allow.so.1
sshd-none password sufficient pam_allow.so.1


Example 2: Allowing Kiosk Automatic Login Service




The following is example is a pam.conf fragment that illustrates a sample
for allowing gdm kiosk auto login:


gdm-autologin auth required pam_unix_cred.so.1
gdm-autologin auth sufficient pam_allow.so.1

NOTES


The interfaces in libpam(3LIB) are MT-Safe only if each thread within the
multi-threaded application uses its own PAM handle.


This module is intended to be used to either allow access to specific
services names, or to all service names not specified (by specifying it
as the default service stack).
