NAME

pam_guest – Guest PAM module

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_guest [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

The guest service module for PAM allows guest logins. If successful, the pam_guest module sets the PAM environment variable GUEST to the login name. The application can check this variable using pam_getenv(3) to differentiate guest logins from normal logins.

The following options may be passed to the pam_guest module:
guests=list Comma-separated list of guest account names. The default is "guest". A typical value for ftpd(8) would be "anonymous,ftp".
nopass Omits the password prompt if the target account is on the list of guest accounts.
pass_as_ruser
  The password typed in by the user is exported as the PAM_RUSER item. This is useful for applications like ftpd(8) where guest users are encouraged to use their email address as password.
pass_is_user Requires the guest user to type in the guest account name as password.
