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

NAME
     pam_self -- Self PAM module

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

DESCRIPTION
     The Self authentication service module for	PAM, pam_self provides func-
     tionality for only	one PAM	category: authentication.  In terms of the
     module-type parameter, this is the	``auth'' feature.

   Self	Authentication Module
     The Self authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()),	returns	suc-
     cess if and only if the target user's user	ID is identical	with the cur-
     rent real user ID.	 If the	current	real user ID is	zero, authentication
     will fail,	unless the allow_root option was specified.

     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.

     allow_root	 do not	automatically fail if the current real user ID is 0.
