NAME
     pam_group -- Group	PAM module

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

DESCRIPTION
     The group service module for PAM accepts or rejects users based on	their
     membership	in a particular	file group.

     The following options may be passed to the	pam_group module:

     deny	Reverse	the meaning of the test, i.e., reject the applicant if
		and only if he or she is a member of the specified group.
		This can be useful to exclude certain groups of	users from
		certain	services.

     fail_safe	If the specified group does not	exist, or has no members, act
		as if it does exist and	the applicant is a member.

     group=groupname
		Specify	the name of the	group to check.	 The default is
		"wheel".

     root_only	Skip this module entirely if the target	account	is not the su-
		peruser	account.
