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

NAME
     pam_tacplus -- TACACS+ authentication PAM module

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

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_tacplus module provides authentication services based upon	the
     TACACS+ protocol for the PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module) framework.

     The pam_tacplus module accepts these optional parameters:

     use_first_pass  causes pam_tacplus	to use a previously entered password
		     instead of	prompting for a	new one.  If no	password has
		     been entered then authentication fails.

     try_first_pass  causes pam_tacplus	to use a previously entered password,
		     if	one is available.  If no password has been entered,
		     pam_tacplus prompts for one as usual.

     echo_pass	     causes echoing to be left on if pam_tacplus prompts for a
		     password.

     conf=pathname   specifies a non-standard location for the TACACS+ client
		     configuration file	(normally located in
		     /etc/tacplus.conf).

     template_user=username
		     specifies a user whose passwd(5) entry will be used as a
		     template to create	the session environment	if the sup-
		     plied username does not exist in local password database.
		     The user will be authenticated with the supplied username
		     and password, but his credentials to the system will be
		     presented as the ones for username, i.e., his login
		     class, home directory, resource limits, etc. will be set
		     to	ones defined for username.

		     If	this option is omitted,	and there is no	username in
		     the system	databases equal	to the supplied	one (as	deter-
		     mined by call to getpwnam(3)), the	authentication will
		     fail.
