NAME ^

Authen::PAM::Module - Base module for writing Pam Modules in Perl

SYNOPSIS ^

        package Authen::PAM::Module::xxxxxx;
        use Authen::PAM::Module qw(type type);
        our @ISA=qw(Authen::PAM::Module);

        sub ...
        {
                my $handle=shift;
                my $flags=shift;
                my @args=@_;
                $handle->{item}
                $handle->{user}
                $handle->{env}
                $handle->{data}

DESCRIPTION ^

Authen::PAM::Module is a base class to be inhereted by perl modules whishing to function as PAM (Plugable Authentication Modules) modules.

paramaters:

The first paramater passed must be the user module name relitave to Authen::PAM::Module::. All paramaters are passed unchanged.

methods:

Only the following methods are overridable:

        new($class, $pamh, $flags, @args): constructor called from first function call. If you overload it, call it to initilize your tied vars, etc.

        authenticate($handle, $flags, @args):
        setcred($handle, $flags, @args):
        acct_mgmt($handle, $flags, @args):
        open_session($handle, $flags, @args):
        close_session($handle, $flags, @args):
        chauthtok($handle, $flags, @args):
        DESTROY:

The following methods are interfaces to the pam library.

The following are tied vars and other constructs to provide the rest of the api.

        $handle->{data} for private storage by child modules (pam_set_data, pam get_data equivilent. no access to other modules data)
        $handle->{user} username, blessed scalar read only
        $handle->{item} pam items, blessed hash read write
        $handle->{env}  pam envroment, blessed hash read write
