diff between "include" directive and use of pam_stack.so?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


  perhaps just my inexperience with PAM but i'm reading an online PAM
tutorial here:


and it mentions the use of the pam_stack.so module to support
recursive(?) processing.  on my centos 5.5 system, "man pam_stack"
appears to describe it much the same way.

  but how does this differ from simply "include"ing another PAM config
file?  on this centos system, the entirety of the use of that module

$ grep pam_stack *
pm-hibernate:#auth       required	pam_stack.so service=system-auth
pm-powersave:#auth       required	pam_stack.so service=system-auth
pm-suspend:#auth       required	pam_stack.so service=system-auth
pm-suspend-hybrid:#auth       required	pam_stack.so service=system-auth

and, as you can see, all of those uses are commented out.  so is
pam_stack.so even used anymore?  thanks.
