Standards, Environments, and Macros          pam_authtok_store(5)



NAME
     pam_authtok_store - password management module

SYNOPSIS
     pam_authtok_store.so.1

DESCRIPTION
     pam_authtok_store provides functionality to the PAM password
     management     stack.     It    provides    one    function:
     pam_sm_chauthtok().

     When invoked with  flags  set  to  PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK,  this
     module  updates the authentication token for the user speci-
     fied by PAM_USER.

     The authentication  token  PAM_OLDAUTHTOK  can  be  used  to
     authenticate  the user against repositories that need updat-
     ing (NIS, LDAP). After successful updates, the new authenti-
     cation token stored in PAM_AUTHTOK is the user's valid pass-
     word.

     This module honors the PAM_REPOSITORY item, which,  if  set,
     specifies   which   repository   is   to   be   updated.  If
     PAM_REPOSITORY is unset, it follows the nsswitch.conf(4).

     The following option can be passed to the module:

     debug syslog(3C)  debugging  information  at  the  LOG_DEBUG
           level

     server_policy
           If the account authority for the user, as specified by
           PAM_USER,  is a server, do not encrypt the authentica-
           tion token before updating.

ERRORS
     PAM_SUCCESS
           Successfully obtains authentication token

     PAM_SYSTEM_ERR
           Fails to get username, service name, old  password  or
           new  password,  user  name  null or empty, or password
           null.

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 might not be supported  in  a  future
     release.    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).
