Projects / pamtester


pamtester is a tiny utility program to test the pluggable authentication modules (PAM) facility. While specifically designed to help PAM module authors to test their own modules, it might also be handy for system administrators interested in building a centralized authentication system using common standards such as NIS, SASL, and LDAP.

    Release Notes: The --with-pam, --with-pam-includes, and --with-pam-libs options were added to allow you to use an arbitrary PAM implementation installed anywhere. A bug was fixed in the -I option in which the name of the item was wrongly given to pam_set_item() instead of the value.

      Release Notes: Support for platforms like Solaris which don't provide the pam_misc convenience library was added. A segfault that occurred when the initialization of the PAM facility failed was fixed.
