pam_sm_acct_mgmt - PAM service function for account management
PAM_EXTERN int pam_sm_acct_mgmt(pam_handle_t *pamh, int flags,
int argc, const char **argv);
The pam_sm_acct_mgmt function is the service module's implementation of
the pam_acct_mgmt(3) interface.
This function performs the task of establishing whether the user is
permitted to gain access at this time. It should be understood that the
user has previously been validated by an authentication module. This
function checks for other things. Such things might be: the time of day
or the date, the terminal line, remote hostname, etc. This function may
also determine things like the expiration on passwords, and respond
that the user change it before continuing.
Valid flags, which may be logically OR'd with PAM_SILENT, are:
Do not emit any messages.
Return PAM_AUTH_ERR if the database of authentication tokens for
this authentication mechanism has a NULL entry for the user.
User account has expired.
The user's authentication token has expired. Before calling this
function again the application will arrange for a new one to be
given. This will likely result in a call to pam_sm_chauthtok().
The authentication token was successfully updated.
User unknown to password service.
