pam_unix_session(5)   Standards, Environments, and Macros  pam_unix_session(5)



NAME
       pam_unix_session - session management PAM module for UNIX

SYNOPSIS
       pam_unix_session.so.1

DESCRIPTION
       The  pam_unix_session  module  implements pam_sm_open_session(3PAM) and
       pam_sm_close_session(3PAM).

       pam_sm_open_session() updates the /var/adm/lastlog file with the infor-
       mation  contained  in  the  PAM_USER,  PAM_TTY,  and  PAM_RHOSTS items.
       pam_unix_account(5) uses this account to determine  the  previous  time
       the user logged in.

       pam_sm_close_session() is a null function.

       The following options can be passed to the module:

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



ERRORS
       Upon  successful  completion,  PAM_SUCCESS  is returned.  The following
       error codes are returned upon error:

       PAM_SESSION_ERR         Cannot make or remove the entry for the  speci-
                               fied session (PAM_TTY is not present).



       PAM_USER_UNKNOWN        No account is present for user.

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 is no longer supported. Similar functionality is
       provided   by   pam_authtok_check(5),   pam_authtok_get(5),   pam_auth-
       tok_store(5),  pam_dhkeys(5),  pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5),
       pam_unix_auth(5), and pam_unix_session(5).
