NAME         top

       pam_permit - The promiscuous module

SYNOPSIS         top

       pam_permit.so

DESCRIPTION         top

       pam_permit is a PAM module that always permit access. It does
       nothing else.

       In the case of authentication, the user's name will be set to
       nobody if the application didn't set one. Many applications and
       PAM modules become confused if this name is unknown.

       This module is very dangerous. It should be used with extreme
       caution.

OPTIONS         top

       This module does not recognise any options.

MODULE TYPES PROVIDED         top

       provided.

RETURN VALUES         top

           This module always returns this value.

EXAMPLES         top

       Add this line to your other login entries to disable account
       management, but continue to permit users to log in.
