pam_sm_acct_mgmt - PAM service function for account management
#define PAM_SM_ACCOUNT #include <security/pam_modules.h> int pam_sm_acct_mgmt(pam_handle_t *pamh, int flags, int argc, const char **argv);
The pam_sm_acct_mgmt function is the service module's implementation of the pam_acct_mgmt(3) interface. This function performs the task of establishing whether the user is permitted to gain access at this time. It should be understood that the user has previously been validated by an authentication module. This function checks for other things. Such things might be: the time of day or the date, the terminal line, remote hostname, etc. This function may also determine things like the expiration on passwords, and respond that the user change it before continuing. Valid flags, which may be logically OR'd with PAM_SILENT, are: PAM_SILENT Do not emit any messages. PAM_DISALLOW_NULL_AUTHTOK Return PAM_AUTH_ERR if the database of authentication tokens for this authentication mechanism has a NULL entry for the user.
PAM_ACCT_EXPIRED User account has expired. PAM_AUTH_ERR Authentication failure. PAM_NEW_AUTHTOK_REQD The user's authentication token has expired. Before calling this function again the application will arrange for a new one to be given. This will likely result in a call to pam_sm_chauthtok(). PAM_PERM_DENIED Permission denied. PAM_SUCCESS The authentication token was successfully updated. PAM_USER_UNKNOWN User unknown to password service.
