NAME

       pam_permit - The promiscuous module

SYNOPSIS

       pam_permit.so

DESCRIPTION

       pam_permit is a PAM module that always permit access. It does nothing else.

       In the case of authentication, the user's name will be set to nobody if the application
       didn't set one. Many applications and PAM modules become confused if this name is unknown.

       This module is very dangerous. It should be used with extreme caution.

OPTIONS

       This module does not recognise any options.

MODULE TYPES PROVIDED

       The auth, account, password and session module types are provided.

RETURN VALUES

       PAM_SUCCESS
           This module always returns this value.

EXAMPLES

       Add this line to your other login entries to disable account management, but continue to
       permit users to log in.
