pam_deny -- Deny PAM module
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_deny [options]
The deny authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for
all the PAM categories: authentication, account management, session man-
agement and password management. In terms of the module-type parameter,
these are the ``auth'', ``account'', ``session'', and ``password'' fea-
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.
no_warn suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include
reasons why the user's authentication attempt was declined.
for password management (``password'' feature), return
PAM_IGNORE in the preliminary phase. This allows the module to
be used (with the ``required'' flag) at the end of a chain of
``sufficient'' modules with this service (where the entire chain
is in fact run twice).
syslog(3), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
