PAM_ENV(8)                     Linux-PAM Manual                     PAM_ENV(8)



NAME
       pam_env - PAM module to set/unset environment variables

SYNOPSIS
       pam_env.so [debug] [conffile=conf-file] [envfile=env-file] [readenv=0|1] [user_envfile=env-file]
                  [user_readenv=0|1]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_env PAM module allows the (un)setting of environment variables. Supported is the use of previously set
       environment variables as well as PAM_ITEMs such as PAM_RHOST.

       By default rules for (un)setting of variables is taken from the config file /etc/security/pam_env.conf if no
       other file is specified.

       This module can also parse a file with simple KEY=VAL pairs on separate lines (/etc/environment by default).
       You can change the default file to parse, with the envfile flag and turn it on or off by setting the readenv
       flag to 1 or 0 respectively.

OPTIONS
       conffile=/path/to/pam_env.conf
           Indicate an alternative pam_env.conf style configuration file to override the default. This can be useful
           when different services need different environments.

       debug
           A lot of debug information is printed with syslog(3).

       envfile=/path/to/environment
           Indicate an alternative environment file to override the default. This can be useful when different
           services need different environments.

       readenv=0|1
           Turns on or off the reading of the file specified by envfile (0 is off, 1 is on). By default this option is
           on.

       user_envfile=filename
           Indicate an alternative .pam_environment file to override the default. This can be useful when different
           services need different environments. The filename is relative to the user home directory.

       user_readenv=0|1
           Turns on or off the reading of the user specific environment file. 0 is off, 1 is on. By default this
           option is off as user supplied environment variables in the PAM environment could affect behavior of
           subsequent modules in the stack without the consent of the system administrator.
