       system-auth - Common configuration file for PAMified services

       /etc/pam.d/system-auth /etc/pam.d/password-auth /etc/pam.d/fingerprint-
       auth /etc/pam.d/smartcard-auth

       The purpose of these configuration files are to provide a common inter‐
       face  for  all  applications  and  service daemons calling into the PAM

       The system-auth configuration file is included from nearly all individ‐
       ual  service  configuration  files with the help of the substack direc‐

       The password-auth fingerprint-auth smartcard-auth  configuration	 files
       are  for	 applications which handle authentication from different types
       of devices via simultaneously running individual conversations  instead
       of one aggregate conversation.

       Previously these common configuration files were included with the help
       of the include directive. This limited the use of the different	action
       types  of modules.  With the use of substack directive to include these
       common configuration files this limitation no longer applies.
