ss5.pam(5)		      File Formats Manual		    ss5.pam(5)

NAME
       ss5.pam - Contains configuration	lines for PAM authentication.

SYNOPSIS
       ss5 usually reads the password file, ss5.passwd,	in the /etc/ss5	direc-
       tory. If	SS5_PAM_AUTH option is set, ss5	call PAM api to	perform	 User-
       name/Password.

DESCRIPTION
       To  enable  PAM	authentication	with  the  ss5	daemon	you  must  set
       SS5_PAM_AUTH options in the ss5.conf file.  Before  PAM	authentication
       works, you have to create ss5 file in the /etc/pam.d directory and con-
       figure it (see /usr/share/doc/ss5/ss5.pam sample	file). On Solaris, you
       have to edit /etc/pam.conf file.

       Like  for password file (see ss5.passwd), adding	PAM authentication re-
       quires 3	steps:

	    1. Create the PAM configuration file with one entry	per  line.  To
	       create  an  entry  for  using /etc/passwd like source, add this
	       line to the /etc/pam.d/ss5 file:
		    auth	required    /lib/security/pam_unix.so

	    2. Edit the	auth line in the configuration file to	require	 User-
	       name/Password  authentication.  The configuration file may con-
	       tain auth lines such as:
		    auth - - -

	       To add username and password authentication,  change  the  line
	       to:
		    auth - - u

		    set	SS5_PAM_AUTH

	    3. Restart the server.
