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

pam_deny -- Deny PAM module
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_deny [options]
The deny authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for all the PAM categories: authentication, account management, session man- agement and password management. In terms of the module-type parameter, these are the ``auth'', ``account'', ``session'', and ``password'' fea- tures. The Deny module will universally deny all requests. It is primarily of use during testing, and to ``null-out'' unwanted functionality. The following options may be passed to the module: debug syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level. no_warn suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was declined. prelim_ignore for password management (``password'' feature), return PAM_IGNORE in the preliminary phase. This allows the module to be used (with the ``required'' flag) at the end of a chain of ``sufficient'' modules with this service (where the entire chain is in fact run twice).
