OPENPAM_NULLCONV(3) BSD Library Functions Manual OPENPAM_NULLCONV(3)NAMEopenpam_nullconv — null conversation function
Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)
openpam_nullconv(int n, const struct pam_message **msg,
struct pam_response **resp, void *data);
The openpam_nullconv function is a null conversation function suitable
for applications that want to use PAM but don't support interactive dia‐
log with the user. Such applications should set PAM_AUTHTOK to whatever
authentication token they've obtained on their own before calling
pam_authenticate(3) and / or pam_chauthtok(3), and their PAM configura‐
tion should specify the use_first_pass option for all modules that
require access to the authentication token, to make sure they use
PAM_AUTHTOK rather than try to query the user.
The openpam_nullconv function returns one of the following values:
[PAM_CONV_ERR] Conversation failure.
