PAM_AFSLOG(8)               System Manager's Manual              PAM_AFSLOG(8)

NAME
     pam_afslog -- AFS credentials PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_afslog [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_afslog authentication service module for PAM provides
     functionality for only one PAM category: authentication (module-type of
     ``auth'').

     The pam_sm_authenticate() function does nothing and thus the module
     should be used with an control-flag of ``optional''.

     The value of the module comes from its pam_sm_setcred() function.  If the
     afslog parameter is enabled in krb5.conf(5), then the module will take
     Kerberos 5 credentials from the cache created by pam_krb5(8) and convert
     them into AFS tokens, after first creating a PAG (Process Authentication
     Group) if necessary.

HISTORY
     The pam_afslog module was developed for NetBSD by Tyler C. Sarna.  The
     pam_afslog module appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
