SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In security/pam_appl.h "int" pam_set_data "pam_handle_t *pamh" "const char *module_data_name" "void *data" "void (*cleanup)(pam_handle_t *pamh, void *data, int pam_end_status)"

DESCRIPTION

The pam_set_data function associates a pointer to an opaque object with an arbitrary string specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context specified by the pamh argument.

If not NULL, the cleanup argument should point to a function responsible for releasing the resources associated with the object.

This function and its counterpart pam_get_data(3) are useful for managing data that are meaningful only to a particular service module.

RETURN VALUES

The pam_set_data function returns one of the following values:
[PAM_BUF_ERR]
Memory buffer error.
[PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]
System error.
