PAM_GROUP(8) MidnightBSD System Manager’s Manual PAM_GROUP(8)
pam_group — Group PAM module
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_group [arguments]
The group service module for PAM accepts or rejects users based on their membership in a particular file group.
The following options may be passed to the pam_group module:
Reverse the meaning of the test, i.e., reject the applicant if and only if he or she is a member of the specified group. This can be useful to exclude certain groups of users from certain services.
If the specified group does not exist, or has no members, act as if it does exist and the applicant is a member.
Specify the name of the group to check. The default is ‘‘wheel’’.
Skip this module entirely if the target account is not the superuser account.
The pam_group module and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and NAI Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (‘‘CBOSS’’), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program.
