pam_afslogAFS credentials PAM module


[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_afslog [arguments]


The pam_afslog authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for only one PAM category: authentication (module-type of “auth”).

The pam_sm_authenticate() function does nothing and thus the module should be used with an control-flag of “optional”.

The value of the module comes from its pam_sm_setcred() function. If the afslog parameter is enabled in krb5.conf(5), then the module will take Kerberos 5 credentials from the cache created by pam_krb5(8) and convert them into AFS tokens, after first creating a PAG (Process Authentication Group) if necessary.


The pam_afslog module was developed for NetBSD by Tyler C. Sarna. The pam_afslog module appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
