       Dancer2::Plugin::Auth::Extensible::Unix - authenticate *nix system

       An authentication provider for Dancer2::Plugin::Auth::Extensible	which
       authenticates Linux/Unix	system accounts.

       Uses "getpwnam" and "getgrent" to read user and group details, and
       Authen::Simple::PAM to perform authentication via PAM.

       Unix group membership is	used as	a reasonable facsimile for roles -
       this seems sensible.

       WARNING:	in order to use	PAM authentication on most modern Linux/UNIX
       systems the application performing authentication must have read	access
       to the "/etc/shadow" file. This is a security risk since	it can lead to
       accidental disclosure of	sensitive data if you have any path traversal
       vulnerabilities,	etc. We	strongly recommend AGAINST using this module
       and provide it purely as	an example. Any	use of it IS AT	YOUR OWN RISK.
       You have	been warned.

   authenticate_user $username,	$password
   get_user_details $username
       Returns information from	the "passwd" file as a hash reference with the
       following keys: uid, gid, quota,	comment, gecos,	 dir, shell, expire

   get_user_roles $username
