./security/pam-pwauth_suid, PAM authentication module for unprivileged users

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.2nb1, Package name: pam-pwauth_suid-1.2nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The pam_pwauth_suid authentication module uses a setuid program
to verify a password against the encrypted password in the
database used by the system. This way, an unprivileged user can
verify his own passsword stored in a shadow password database.
There might be some risk that the communication between the
invoking program and the setuid program is logged, or for abuse
for dictionary attacks.

Log message:
pam-pwauth_suid: add an additional detail to the MESSAGE file

Right now, a user installing xscreensaver with the "pam" option will
see two messages about how to configure it, one of which comes from
this package. This needs to be disentangled properly, but there are
some broader questions that also apply to gnome-screensaver and mate-
screensaver, so for now, add a bit more detail here just in case. (This
relates to, but doesn't particularly address, PR pkg/50622.)

Use LDFLAGS when linking. Use CC instead of LD since LDFLAGS for
relro are prefixed with "-Wl,". Cleanup some pkglint.

Log message:
-make this work with the openpam version in -current
 (I didn't try whether it still works on 4.0. Would be nice if
  someone did it.)
-supply an example pam.conf file
-slow down to avoid abuse, better cleanup in error cases, more paranoia
thanks to Joerg for suggestions
