SEPERMIT.CONF(5)            Linux-PAM Manual            SEPERMIT.CONF(5)

NAME         top

       sepermit.conf - configuration file for the pam_sepermit module

DESCRIPTION         top

       The lines of the configuration file have the following syntax:

       <user>[:<option>:<option>...]

       The user can be specified in the following manner:

       •   a username

       •   a groupname, with @group syntax. This should not be confused
           with netgroups.

       •   a SELinux user name with %seuser syntax.

       The recognized options are:

       exclusive
           Only single login session will be allowed for the user and
           the user's processes will be killed on logout.

       ignore
           The module will never return PAM_SUCCESS status for the user.
           It will return PAM_IGNORE if SELinux is in the enforcing
           mode, and PAM_AUTH_ERR otherwise. It is useful if you want to
           support passwordless guest users and other confined users
           with passwords simultaneously.

       The lines which start with # character are comments and are
       ignored.

EXAMPLES         top

       These are some example lines which might be specified in
       /etc/security/sepermit.conf.

           %guest_u:exclusive
           %staff_u:ignore
           %user_u:ignore
