PAM_GROUP(8)            NetBSD System Manager's Manual            PAM_GROUP(8)

NAME
     pam_group -- Group PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_group [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
     The group service module for PAM accepts or rejects users based on their
     membership in a particular file group.

     The following options may be passed to the pam_group module:

     deny       Reverse the meaning of the test, i.e., reject the applicant if
                and only if he or she is a member of the specified group.
                This can be useful to exclude certain groups of users from
                certain services.

     fail_safe  If the specified group does not exist, or has no members, act
                as if it does exist and the applicant is a member.

     group=groupname
                Specify the name of the group to check.  The default is
                ``wheel''.

     root_only  Skip this module entirely if the target account is not the
                superuser account.

     authenticate
                The user is asked to authenticate using his own password.
