OPENPAM(3)              NetBSD Library Functions Manual             OPENPAM(3)

NAME
     openpam -- Pluggable Authentication Modules Library

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <security/openpam.h>

DESCRIPTION
     These functions are OpenPAM extensions to the PAM API.  Those named
     pam_*() are, in the author's opinion, logical and necessary extensions to
     the standard API, while those named openpam_*() are either simple conve-
     nience functions, or functions intimately tied to OpenPAM implementation
     details, and therefore not well suited to standardization.
