lsh-pam-checkpw - program to check a PAM username/password combination
This manual page documents briefly the lsh-pam-checkpw command. This
manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has
documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.
lsh-pam-checkpw is a program that checks if a username and password
combination is valid for login by doing a PAM lookup. It is designed to
be used as a password helper program for lshd (8), (eg.
lsh-pam-checkpw takes one required argument, which is the username, and
reads the password from stdin, then returns 0 if the password is valid,
or 1 otherwise. Note that the password must be supplied exactly, ie.
there must be no newline after the password, so if invoking from a
shell, just type "<your-password><CTRL-D>".
lsh(1), lshd(8). The programs are documented fully by Lsh, available
via the Info system.
