NAME
     pam_group — Group PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_group [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
     The group service module for PAM accepts or rejects users based on their
     membership in a particular file group.

     The following options may be passed to the pam_group module:

     deny	Reverse the meaning of the test, i.e., reject the applicant if
		and only if he or she is a member of the specified group.
		This can be useful to exclude certain groups of users from
		certain services.

     fail_safe	If the specified group does not exist, or has no members, act
		as if it does exist and the applicant is a member.

     group=groupname
		Specify the name of the group to check.	 The default is
		“wheel”.

     root_only	Skip this module entirely if the target account is not the
		superuser account.
