NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     login_krb5-or-pwd - provide KerberosV or password  authentication type

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     login_krb5-or-pwd [-s service] [-v ignored] user [class]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The login_krb5-or-pwd program first attempts to authenticate
the user via
     KerberosV and, failing that, falls back to standard password

     If    KerberosV   is   not   configured   on   the   system,
login_krb5-or-pwd is equivalent
 to calling login_passwd(8).  When root tries to login,
     login_krb5-or-pwd  skips  KerberosV  authentication, as this
may give problems
 in case of a network failure.

     The user argument is the user's name to be authenticated.

     The service argument specifies which protocol  to  use  with
the invoking
     program.   The  allowed  protocols are login, challenge, and
response.  (The
     challenge protocol is silently ignored but will report  success as KerberosV
 authentication is not challenge-response based).

     The ignored argument is ignored for compatibility with other

     login_krb5-or-pwd will prompt the user for  a  password  and
report back to
     the  invoking  program whether or not the authentication was
