NAME

       pam_pkcs11 - PAM Authentication Module for PKCS#11 token libraries

SYNOPSIS

       pam_pkcs11.so [debug] [configfile=<configfile>]

DESCRIPTION

       This  Linux-PAM  login module allows a X.509 certificate based user login. The certificate
       and its dedicated private key are thereby accessed by means of  an  appropriate  PKCS  #11
       module. For the verification of the users' certificates, locally stored CA certificates as
       well as either online or locally accessible CRLs are used.

CONFIGURATION

       The  program  that  needs  a  PAM  service  should  be  configured  in  /etc/pam.conf   or
       /etc/pam.d/<servicename>.

       pam_pkcs11 can be used in the <auth> PAM chain.

       For  details  on how to configure PAM services, see the PAM documentation for your system.
       This manual does not cover PAM configuration details. The existing PAM service definitions
       for  other  applications  on  your  system  is  also  a good source for examples on how to
       configure a PAM service.
