Linux-PAM is a library that enables the local system administrator to choose how individual applications authenticate users. The purpose of the Linux-PAM project is to liberate the development of privilege granting software from the development of secure and appropriate authentication schemes. This is accomplished by providing a documented library of functions that an application may use for all forms of user authentication management. This library dynamically loads locally configured authentication modules that actually perform the authentication tasks. Packaged by Georgi D. Sotirov <>
