[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_rhosts [options]

DESCRIPTION

The rhosts authentication service module for PAM, pam_rhosts provides functionality for only one PAM category: authentication. In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the "auth" feature.

Rhosts Authentication Module

The Rhosts authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate), returns success if and only if the target user’s UID is not 0 and the remote host and user are listed in /etc/hosts.equiv or in the target user’s ~/.rhosts.

The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

debug syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.
no_warn suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include reasons why the user’s authentication attempt was declined.
allow_root do not automatically fail if the target user’s UID is 0.
