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
     pam_unix_session    provides    functions    to     initiate
     pam_sm_open_session(3PAM)       and       to       terminate
     pam_sm_close_session(3PAM).

     pam_open_session  updates  the  /var/adm/lastlog  file.  The
     account  management module reads this file 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

     nowarn
           Turn off warning messages

     PAM_SUCCESS
           Successful completiton

     PAM_SESSION_ERR
           Can not make or remove the  entry  for  the  specified
           session

     PAM_USER_UNKNOWN

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),
