lsh-pam-checkpw - program to check a PAM username/password combination
This manual page documents briefly the lsh-pam-checkpw
manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original
program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU
Info format; see below.
is a program that checks if a username and password
combination is valid for login by doing a PAM lookup. It is designed to be
used as a password helper program for lshd (8)
takes one required argument, which is the username, and
reads the password from stdin, then returns 0 if the password is valid, or 1
otherwise. Note that the password must be supplied exactly, ie. there must be
no newline after the password, so if invoking from a shell, just type
(8). The programs are documented fully by Lsh
available via the Info system.
