NAME pam_ftpusers — ftpusers PAM module
SYNOPSIS [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_ftpusers [options]
The ftpusers service module for PAM provides functionality for only one PAM category: account management. In terms of the module-type
parameter, this is the “
Ftpusers Account Management Module
account management component (pam_sm_acct_mgmt
()), succeeds if and only if the user is listed in /etc/ftpusers
The following options may be passed to the authentication module:
syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.
suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was declined.
reverse the semantics; pam_ftpusers will succeed if and only if the user is not listed in /etc/ftpusers.
AUTHORS The pam_ftpusers module and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and NAI Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (“CBOSS”), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program.
The current version of this module parses an older format of the ftpusers(5)
file and should not be used. ftpd(8)
will keep using its built-in ftpusers(5)
parsing code until the parser code in the pam module is fixed.
