pam_sepermit.so [debug] [conf=/path/to/config/file]
The pam_sepermit module allows or denies login depending on SELinux
When the user which is logging in matches an entry in the config file
he is allowed access only when the SELinux is in enforcing mode.
Otherwise he is denied access. For users not matching any entry in the
config file the pam_sepermit module returns PAM_IGNORE return value.
The config file contains a list of user names one per line with
optional arguments. If the name is prefixed with @ character it means
that all users in the group name match. If it is prefixed with a %
character the SELinux user is used to match against the name instead of
the account name. Note that when SELinux is disabled the SELinux user
assigned to the account cannot be determined. This means that such
entries are never matched when SELinux is disabled and pam_sepermit
will return PAM_IGNORE.
See sepermit.conf(5) for details.
Turns on debugging via syslog(3).
Path to alternative config file overriding the default.
