pam_deny – Deny PAM module



[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_deny [options]


The Deny authentication service module for PAM, pam_deny provides functionality for all the PAM categories: authentication, account management, session management and password management. In terms of the module-type parameter, these are the "auth", "account", "session", and "password" features.

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.
  suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was declined.


syslog(3), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
