NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pam_tacplus -- TACACS+ authentication PAM module

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_tacplus [options]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pam_tacplus module provides authentication services based upon the
     TACACS+ protocol for the PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module) framework.

     The pam_tacplus module accepts these optional parameters:

     use_first_pass  causes pam_tacplus to use a previously entered password
                     instead of prompting for a new one.  If no password has
                     been entered then authentication fails.

     try_first_pass  causes pam_tacplus to use a previously entered password,
                     if one is available.  If no password has been entered,
                     pam_tacplus prompts for one as usual.

     echo_pass       causes echoing to be left on if pam_tacplus prompts for a

     conf=pathname   specifies a non-standard location for the TACACS+ client
                     configuration file (normally located in

                     specifies a user whose passwd(5) entry will be used as a
                     template to create the session environment if the supplied
 username does not exist in local password database.
                     The user will be authenticated with the supplied username
                     and password, but his credentials to the system will be
                     presented as the ones for username, i.e., his login
                     class, home directory, resource limits, etc. will be set
                     to ones defined for username.

                     If this option is omitted, and there is no username in
                     the system databases equal to the supplied one (as determined
 by call to getpwnam(3)), the authentication will
