NAME         top

       pam_sm_acct_mgmt - PAM service function for account management

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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);

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

RETURN VALUES         top

       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.
