pam_nologin - NoLogin PAM module



      pam_nologin - NoLogin PAM module


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


      The NoLogin service module for PAM, pam_nologin provides functionality
      for only one PAM category: account management.  In terms of the
      module-type parameter, this is the “account” feature.
    NoLogin Account Management Module
      The NoLogin account management component, pam_sm_acct_mgmt(), verifies
      whether logins are administratively disabled via nologin(5).  It returns
      success if the user’s login class has an "ignorenologin" capability spec‐
      ified in login.conf(5) or the nologin(5) file does not exist.  If neither
      condition is met, then the contents of nologin(5) are echoed before fail‐
      ure is returned.  The location of nologin(5) is specified by a "nologin"
      capability in login.conf(5), which defaults to /var/run/nologin.
      The following options may be passed to the 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 login attempt was declined.
      syslog(3), login.conf(5), nologin(5), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
