NAME

pam_lastlog — login accounting PAM module

SYNOPSIS

[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_lastlog [options]

DESCRIPTION

The login accounting service module for PAM, pam_lastlog provides functionality for only one PAM category: session management. In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the ‘‘session’’ feature.

Login Accounting Session Management Module
The login accounting session management component provides functions to initiate (pam_sm_open_session()) and terminate (pam_sm_close_session()) sessions. The pam_sm_open_session() function records the session in the utmp(5), wtmp(5) and lastlog(5) databases. The pam_sm_close_session() function does nothing.

The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

debug

syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

no_warn

suppress warning messages to the user.

no_fail

Ignore I/O failures.
