PAM_SECURETTY(8)	FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual	      PAM_SECURETTY(8)

NAME
     pam_securetty -- SecureTTY	PAM module

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

DESCRIPTION
     The SecureTTY service module for PAM, pam_securetty provides functional-
     ity for only one PAM category: account management.	 In terms of the
     module-type parameter, this is the	``account'' feature.  It also provides
     null functions for	authentication and session management.

   SecureTTY Account Management	Module
     The SecureTTY account management component	(pam_sm_acct_mgmt()), returns
     failure if	the user is attempting to authenticate as superuser, and the
     process is	attached to an insecure	TTY.  In all other cases, the module
     returns success.

     A TTY is considered secure	if it is listed	in /etc/ttys and has the
     TTY_SECURE	flag set.

     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.
