SEPERMIT.CONF(5) Linux-PAM Manual SEPERMIT.CONF(5)

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
