pam_loginuid


SYNOPSIS
       pam_loginuid.so [require_auditd]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_loginuid module sets the loginuid process attribute for the
       process that was authenticated. This is necessary for applications to
       be correctly audited. This PAM module should only be used for entry
       point applications like: login, sshd, gdm, vsftpd, crond and atd. There
       are probably other entry point applications besides these. You should
       not use it for applications like sudo or su as that defeats the purpose
       by changing the loginuid to the account they just switched to.

OPTIONS
       require_auditd
           This option, when given, will cause this module to query the audit
           daemon status and deny logins if it is not running.

MODULE TYPES PROVIDED
       Only the session module type is provided.

RETURN VALUES
       PAM_SESSION_ERR
           An error occurred during session management.

EXAMPLES
