NAME

       pam_winbind - PAM module for Winbind

DESCRIPTION

       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.

SYNOPSIS

       Edit the PAM system config /etc/pam.d/service and modify it as the following example
       shows:

                              ...
                              auth      required        pam_env.so
                              auth      sufficient      pam_unix2.so
                          +++ auth      required        pam_winbind.so  use_first_pass
                              account   requisite       pam_unix2.so
                          +++ account   required        pam_winbind.so  use_first_pass
                          +++ password  sufficient      pam_winbind.so
                              password  requisite       pam_pwcheck.so  cracklib
                              password  required        pam_unix2.so    use_authtok
                              session   required        pam_unix2.so
                          +++ session   required        pam_winbind.so
                              ...

       Make sure that pam_winbind is one of the first modules in the session part. It may
       retrieve kerberos tickets which are needed by other modules.

OPTIONS

       pam_winbind supports several options which can either be set in the PAM configuration
       files or in the pam_winbind configuration file situated at /etc/security/pam_winbind.conf.
       Options from the PAM configuration file take precedence to those from the configuration
       file. See pam_winbind.conf(5) for further details.

       debug
           Gives debugging output to syslog.

       debug_state
           Gives detailed PAM state 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, an alias-SID or even an user-SID.
           It is also possible to give a NAME instead of the SID. That name must have the form:
           MYDOMAIN\\mygroup or MYDOMAIN\\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
           --user-sids=SID.

           This option must only be specified on a auth module declaration, as it only operates
           in conjunction with password authentication.

       use_first_pass
           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 is
           available.

       try_first_pass
           Same as the use_first_pass option (previous item), except that if the primary password
           is not valid, PAM will prompt for a password.

       use_authtok
           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.

       krb5_auth
           pam_winbind can authenticate using Kerberos when winbindd is talking to an Active
           Directory domain controller. Kerberos authentication must be enabled with this
           parameter. When Kerberos authentication can not succeed (e.g. due to clock skew),
           winbindd will fallback to samlogon authentication over MSRPC. When this parameter is
           used in conjunction with winbind refresh tickets, winbind will keep your Ticket
           Granting Ticket (TGT) uptodate by refreshing it whenever necessary.

       krb5_ccache_type=[type]
           When pam_winbind is configured to try kerberos authentication by enabling the
           krb5_auth option, it can store the retrieved Ticket Granting Ticket (TGT) in a
           credential cache. The type of credential cache can be set with this option. Currently
           the only supported value is: FILE. In that case a credential cache in the form of
           /tmp/krb5cc_UID will be created, where UID is replaced with the numeric user id. Leave
           empty to just do kerberos authentication without having a ticket cache after the logon
           has succeeded.

       cached_login
           Winbind allows to logon using cached credentials when winbind offline logon is
           enabled. To use this feature from the PAM module this option must be set.

       silent
           Do not emit any messages.

       mkhomedir
           Create homedirectory for a user on-the-fly, option is valid in PAM session block.

       warn_pwd_expire
           Defines number of days before pam_winbind starts to warn about passwords that are
           going to expire. Defaults to 14 days.

PAM DATA EXPORTS

       This section describes the data exported in the PAM stack which could be used in other PAM
       modules.

       PAM_WINBIND_HOMEDIR
           This is the Windows Home Directory set in the profile tab in the user settings on the
           Active Directory Server. This could be a local path or a directory on a share mapped
           to a drive.

       PAM_WINBIND_LOGONSCRIPT
           The path to the logon script which should be executed if a user logs in. This is
           normally a relative path to the script stored on the server.

       PAM_WINBIND_LOGONSERVER
           This exports the Active Directory server we are authenticating against. This can be
           used as a variable later.

       PAM_WINBIND_PROFILEPATH
           This is the profile path set in the profile tab in the user settings. Normally the
           home directory is synced with this directory on a share.
