OPENPAM(3)		 BSD 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 conve-
     nience 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.
