NAME

postlogin - Common configuration file for PAMified services

 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/pam.d/postlogin

 

DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this PAM configuration file is to provide a common place for all PAM modules which should be called after the stack configured in system-auth or the other common PAM configuration files.

The postlogin configuration file is included from all individual service configuration files that provide login service with shell or file access.

 

NOTES

The modules in the postlogin configuration file are executed regardless of the success or failure of the modules in the system-auth configuration file.

 

BUGS

Sometimes it would be useful to be able to skip the postlogin modules in case the substack of the system-auth modules failed. Unfortunately the current Linux-PAM library does not provide any way how to achieve this.
