NAME
       pam_cifscreds - PAM module to manage NTLM credentials in kernel keyring

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

              ...
              auth       substack     system-auth
          +++ auth       optional     pam_cifscreds.so
              auth       include      postlogin
              ...

              ...
              session    include      system-auth
          +++ session    optional     pam_cifscreds.so domain=DOMAIN
              session    include      postlogin
              ...

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

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_cifscreds PAM module is a tool for automatically adding creden-
       tials  (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.

OPTIONS
       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
       host=.

       debug
          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
          addresses.

NOTES
       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
       kernels.

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