PAM_OPIEACCESS(8)         BSD System Manager's Manual        PAM_OPIEACCESS(8)

     pam_opieaccess -- OPIEAccess PAM module

     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_opieaccess [options]

     The pam_opieaccess module is used in conjunction with the pam_opie(8) PAM
     module to ascertain that authentication can proceed by other means (such
     as the pam_unix(8) module) even if OPIE authentication failed.  To prop-
     erly use this module, pam_opie(8) should be marked ``sufficient'', and
     pam_opieaccess should be listed right below it and marked ``requisite''.

     The pam_opieaccess module provides functionality for only one PAM cate-
     gory: authentication.  In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the
     ``auth'' feature.  It also provides null functions for the remaining mod-
     ule types.

   OPIEAccess Authentication Module
     The authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), returns PAM_SUCCESS
     in two cases:

     1.   The user does not have OPIE enabled.

     2.   The user has OPIE enabled, and the remote host is listed as a
          trusted host in /etc/opieaccess, and the user does not have a file
          named opiealways in his home directory.

     Otherwise, it returns PAM_AUTH_ERR.

     The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

     allow_local  Normally, local logins are subjected to the same restric-
                  tions as remote logins from ``localhost''.  This option
                  causes pam_opieaccess to always allow local logins.

     debug        syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn      suppress warning messages to the user.  These messages
                  include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was

     /etc/opieaccess  List of trusted hosts or networks.  See opieaccess(5)
                      for a description of its syntax.
