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

NAME
     pam_rootok -- RootOK PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_rootok [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The RootOK authentication service module for PAM, pam_rootok provides
     functionality for only one PAM category: authentication.  In terms of the
     module-type parameter, this is the ``auth'' feature.  It also provides a
     null function for session management.

   RootOK Authentication Module
     The RootOK authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), always
     returns success for the superuser; i.e., if getuid(2) returns 0.

     The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

     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 declined.
