NAME

sepermit.conf - configuration file for the pam_sepermit module  

DESCRIPTION

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

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

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