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

NAME
     pam_chroot	-- Chroot PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type	control-flag pam_chroot	[arguments]

DESCRIPTION
     The chroot	service	module for PAM chroots users into either a predeter-
     mined directory or	one derived from their home directory.	If a user's
     home directory as specified in the	passwd structure returned by
     getpwnam(3) contains the string "/./", the	portion	of the directory name
     to	the left of that string	is used	as the chroot directory, and the por-
     tion to the right will be the current working directory inside the	chroot
     tree.  Otherwise, the directories specified by the	dir and	cwd options
     (see below) are used.

     also_root	Do not hold user ID 0 exempt from the chroot requirement.

     always	Report a failure if a chroot directory could not be derived
		from the user's	home directory,	and the	dir option was not
		specified.

     cwd=directory
		Specify	the directory to chdir(2) into after a successful
		chroot(2) call.

     dir=directory
		Specify	the chroot directory to	use if one could not be	de-
		rived from the user's home directory.
