pam_winbind - PAM module for Winbind
This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.
pam_winbind is a PAM module that can authenticate users against the
local domain by talking to the Winbind daemon.
pam_winbind supports several options:
debug Gives debugging output to syslog.
require_membership_of=[SID or NAME]
If this option is set, pam_winbind will only succeed if the user
is a member of the given SID or NAME. A SID can be either a
group-SID, a alias-SID or even a user-SID. It is also possible
to give a NAME instead of the SID. That name must have the form:
MYDOMAIN\mygroup orMYDOMAIN\myuser. pam_winbind will, in that
case, lookup the SID internally. Note that NAME may not contain
any spaces. It is thus recommended to only use SIDs. You can
verify the list of SIDs a user is a member of with wbinfo
By default, pam_winbind tries to get the authentication token
from a previous module. If no token is available it asks the
user for the old password. With this option, pam_winbind aborts
with an error if no authentication token from a previous module
Set the new password to the one provided by the previously
stacked password module. If this option is not set pam_winbind
will ask the user for the new password.

The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
This manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij and Guenther Deschner.
