OPENPAM(3)             FreeBSD Library Functions Manual             OPENPAM(3)

NAME
     - Pluggable Authentication Modules Library

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <security/openpam.h>

DESCRIPTION
     These functions are OpenPAM extensions to the PAM API.  Those named
     pam_*() are, in the author's opinion, logical and necessary extensions to
     the standard API, while those named openpam_*() are either simple
     convenience functions, or functions intimately tied to OpenPAM
     implementation details, and therefore not well suited to standardization.

SEE ALSO
STANDARDS
     X/Open Single Sign-On Service (XSSO) - Pluggable Authentication Modules,
     June 1997.

AUTHORS
     The OpenPAM library and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD

     Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract
     N66001-01-C-8035 (``CBOSS''), as part of the DARPA CHATS research
     program.

     The OpenPAM library is maintained by Dag-Erling Smorgrav <des@des.no>.
