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