NAME

       pam_sss - PAM module for SSSD

SYNOPSIS

       pam_sss.so [quiet] [forward_pass] [use_first_pass] [use_authtok]
                  [retry=N]

DESCRIPTION

       pam_sss.so is the PAM interface to the System Security Services daemon
       (SSSD). Errors and results are logged through syslog(3) with the
       LOG_AUTHPRIV facility.

OPTIONS

       quiet
           Suppress log messages for unknown users.

       forward_pass
           If forward_pass is set the entered password is put on the stack for
           other PAM modules to use.

       use_first_pass
           The argument use_first_pass forces the module to use a previous
           stacked modules password and will never prompt the user - if no
           password is available or the password is not appropriate, the user
           will be denied access.

       use_authtok
           When password changing enforce the module to set the new password
           to the one provided by a previously stacked password module.

       retry=N
           If specified the user is asked another N times for a password if
           authentication fails. Default is 0.

           Please note that this option might not work as expected if the
           application calling PAM handles the user dialog on its own. A
           typical example is sshd with PasswordAuthentication.

MODULE TYPES PROVIDED

       All module types (account, auth, password and session) are provided.

FILES

       If a password reset by root fails, because the corresponding SSSD
       provider does not support password resets, an individual message can be
       displayed. This message can e.g. contain instructions about how to
       reset a password.

       The message is read from the file pam_sss_pw_reset_message.LOC where
       LOC stands for a locale string returned by setlocale(3). If there is no
       matching file the content of pam_sss_pw_reset_message.txt is displayed.
       Root must be the owner of the files and only root may have read and
       write permissions while all other users must have only read
       permissions.

       These files are searched in the directory
       /etc/sssd/customize/DOMAIN_NAME/. If no matching file is present a
       generic message is displayed.
