NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     login_passwd - provide standard password authentication type

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     login_passwd    [-s    service]    [-v   wheel=yes|no]   [-v
lastchance=yes|no] user

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The login_passwd utility is called by login(1),  su(1),  ftpd(8), and others
  to  authenticate the user with passwd-style authentication.

     The user argument is the login name of the user  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 passwdstyle
 authentication is not challenge-response based).

     If the wheel  argument  is  specified  and  is  not  set  to
``yes'', then the
     user will be rejected as not being in group ``wheel''.  This
is used by

     If the lastchance argument is  specified  and  is  equal  to
``yes'', then if
     the user's password has expired, and it has not been expired
longer than
     ``password-dead'' seconds (see login.conf(5)), the user will
be able to
     log in one last time to change the password.

     login_passwd  will prompt the user for a password and report
back to the
     invoking program whether or not the authentication was  successful.
