SYSTEM-AUTH(5)                 Linux-PAM Manual                 SYSTEM-AUTH(5)



NAME
       system-auth - Common configuration file for PAMified services


SYNOPSIS
       /etc/pam.d/system-auth /etc/pam.d/password-auth /etc/pam.d/fingerprint-auth /etc/pam.d/smartcard-auth



DESCRIPTION
       The  purpose  of  these  configuration files are to provide a common interface for all applications and service
       daemons calling into the PAM library.


       The system-auth configuration file is included from nearly all individual service configuration files with  the
       help of the include directive.


       The password-auth fingerprint-auth smartcard-auth configuration files are for applications which handle authen-
       tication from different types of devices via simultaneously running individual  conversations  instead  of  one
       aggregate conversation.


NOTES
       There  should  be no sufficient modules in the session part of system-auth file because individual services may
       add session modules after include of the system-auth file. Execution of these modules would be skipped if there
       were sufficient modules in system-auth file.


       Conversely  there  should not be any modules after include directive in the individual service files in authac-
       count and password sections otherwise they could be bypassed.


BUGS
       None known.
