NAME
       pam_rhosts_auth - authentication management PAM module using ruserok()

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1

DESCRIPTION
       The   rhosts    PAM   module,   /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1,
       authenticates a user  via  the  rlogin  authentication  protocol.  Only
       pam_sm_authenticate() is implemented within this module. pam_sm_authen-
       ticate() uses the ruserok(3SOCKET) library function to authenticate the
       rlogin or rsh user. pam_sm_setcred() is a null function.

       /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1 is designed to be stacked on top
       of  the /usr/lib/security/pam_unix.so.1 module for both the rlogin  and
       rsh  services. This module is normally configured as sufficient so that
       subsequent   authentication   is   performed   only   on   failure   of
       pam_sm_authenticate().  The  following  option may be passed in to this
       service module:

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