NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pam_get_data -- get module information

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     PAM Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>

     pam_get_data(pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name,
         const void **data);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pam_get_data function looks up the opaque object associated with the
     string specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context
     specified by the pamh argument.  A pointer to the object is stored in the
     location pointed to by the data argument.

     data that are meaningful only to a particular service module.

                         Module data not found.
