NAME
       pam_ldap	- PAM module for LDAP-based authentication

SYNOPSIS
       pam_ldap.so [...]

DESCRIPTION
       This  is	 a  PAM	 module	that uses an LDAP server to verify user	access
       rights and credentials.

OPTIONS
       use_first_pass
	      Specifies	that the PAM module should use the first password pro-
	      vided  in	the authentication stack and not prompt	the user for a
	      password.

       try_first_pass
	      Specifies	that the PAM module should use the first password pro-
	      vided  in	 the authentication stack and if that fails prompt the
	      user for a password.

       nullok Specifying this option allows users to log in with a blank pass-
	      word.  Normally logins without a password	are denied.

       ignore_unknown_user
	      Specifies	that the PAM module should return PAM_IGNORE for users
	      that are not present in the LDAP directory.  This	causes the PAM
	      framework	to ignore this module.

       ignore_authinfo_unavail
	      Specifies	 that  the  PAM	 module	should return PAM_IGNORE if it
	      cannot contact the LDAP server.  This causes the	PAM  framework
	      to ignore	this module.

       no_warn
	      Specifies	 that warning messages should not be propagated	to the
	      PAM application.

       use_authtok
	      This causes the PAM module to use	the earlier provided  password
	      when  changing the password. The module will not prompt the user
	      for a new	password (it is	analogous to use_first_pass).

       debug  This option causes the PAM module	to log	debugging  information
	      to syslog(3).

       minimum_uid=UID
	      This option causes the PAM module	to ignore the user if the user
	      id is lower than the specified value. This can be	used to	bypass
	      LDAP checks for system users (e.g. by setting it to 1000).

MODULE SERVICES	PROVIDED
       All services are	provided by this module	but currently sessions changes
       are not implemented in the nslcd	daemon.

FILES
       /etc/pam.conf
	      the main PAM configuration file

       /etc/nslcd.conf
	      The configuration	file for the nslcd daemon (see nslcd.conf(5))
