PAM_GROUP(8) NetBSD System Manager's Manual PAM_GROUP(8)
pam_group -- Group PAM module
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_group [arguments]
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.
The pam_group 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.
