pam_get_data -- get module information
#include <sys/types.h> #include <security/pam_appl.h> int pam_get_data(const pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name, const void **data);
The pam_get_data() function looks up the opaque object associated with the string specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context specified by the pamh argument. A pointer to the object is stored in the location pointed to by the data argument. If pam_get_data() fails, the data argument is untouched. This function and its counterpart pam_set_data(3) are useful for managing data that are meaningful only to a particular service module.
The pam_get_data() function returns one of the following values: [PAM_SUCCESS] Success. [PAM_NO_MODULE_DATA] Module data not found.
