       pam_cifscreds - PAM module to manage NTLM credentials in kernel keyring

       Edit the PAM configuration files for the systems that you want to
       automatically register NTLM credentials for, e.g. /etc/pam.d/login, and
       modify as follows:

               auth       substack     system-auth
           +++ auth       optional
               auth       include      postlogin

               session    include      system-auth
           +++ session    optional domain=DOMAIN
               session    include      postlogin

       Change DOMAIN to the name of you Windows domain, or use host= as
       described below.

       The pam_cifscreds PAM module is a tool for automatically adding
       credentials (username and password) for the purpose of establishing
       sessions in multiuser mounts.

       When a cifs filesystem is mounted with the "multiuser" option, and does
       not use krb5 authentication, it needs to be able to get the credentials
       for each user from somewhere. The pam_cifscreds module can be used to
       provide these credentials to the kernel automatically at login.

       In the session section of the PAM configuration file, the module can
       either an NT domain name or a list of hostname or addresses.

       pam_cifscreds supports a couple options which can be set in the PAM
       configuration files.  You must have one (and only one) of domain= or

           Turns on some extra debug logging.

       domain=<NT domain name>
           Credentials will be added for the specified NT domain name.

       host=<hostname or IP address>[,...]
           Credentials will be added for the specified hostnames or IP

       The pam_cifscreds PAM module requires a kernel built with support for
       the login key type. That key type was added in v3.3 in mainline Linux

       Since pam_cifscreds adds keys to the session keyring, it is highly
       recommended that one use pam_keyinit to ensure that a session keyring
       is established at login time.
