pam_localuser


SYNOPSIS
       pam_localuser.so [debug] [file=/path/passwd]

DESCRIPTION
       pam_localuser is a PAM module to help implementing site-wide login
       policies, where they typically include a subset of the network's users
       and a few accounts that are local to a particular workstation. Using
       pam_localuser and pam_wheel or pam_listfile is an effective way to
       restrict access to either local users and/or a subset of the network's
       users.

       This could also be implemented using pam_listfile.so and a very short
       awk script invoked by cron, but it's common enough to have been
       separated out.

       file=/path/passwd

EXAMPLES
