LOGIN_REJECT(8)         OpenBSD System Manager's Manual        LOGIN_REJECT(8)

NAME
     login_reject - provide rejected authentication

SYNOPSIS
     login_reject [-s service] user [class]

DESCRIPTION
     The login_reject utility provides the rejection authentication class.
     The user name, while required, is ignored.  The class name, which is op-
     tional, is also ignored.  The reject authentication mechanism is intended
     to be used to disallow certain types of logins.  For example, a class en-
     try (see login.conf(5)) may contain:

             :auth=krb-or-pwd,kerberos,passwd:
             :auth-ftp=reject:

     which would allow authentication for this class in most situations but
     would reject attempts to authenticate from ftpd(8).
