pam_echo - Echo PAM module



      pam_echo - Echo PAM module


      [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_echo [arguments]


      The echo service module for PAM displays its arguments to the user, sepa‐
      rated by spaces, using the current conversation function.
      If the % character occurs anywhere in the arguments to pam_echo, it is
      assumed to introduce one of the following escape sequences:
      %H    The name of the host on which the client runs (PAM_RHOST).
      %s    The current service name (PAM_SERVICE).
      %t    The name of the controlling tty (PAM_TTY).
      %U    The applicant’s user name (PAM_RUSER).
      %u    The target account’s user name (PAM_USER).
      Any other two-character sequence beginning with % expands to the charac‐
      ter following the % character.
      pam.conf(5), pam(8)


      The pam_echo module and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD
      Project by ThinkSec AS and NAI Labs, the Security Research Division of
      Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035
      (“CBOSS”), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program.
