Querry regarding use of pam_succeed_if.so

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


I am studying PAM.
I understood upto “auth sufficient pam_unix.so.”. If credentials are ok then authentication will be successful. And it wont load any other module.
But then why pam_succeed_if.so is there? I just did some work on it, I found it is only useful when pam_deny is disable.
auth        requisite     pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 500 quiet
Also it is used in “account” module type:
account     sufficient    pam_succeed_if.so uid < 500 quiet
Can you please explain me? I saw the documentation too, but didn’t understand the purpose of it.
