[debug] [conffile= conf-file] [envfile=env-file]
[readenv=0|1] [user_envfile= env-file]
The pam_env PAM module allows the (un)setting of environment variables.
Supported is the use of previously set environment variables as well as
s such as PAM_RHOST
By default rules for (un)setting of variables is taken from the config file
/etc/security/pam_env.conf if no other file is specified.
This module can also parse a file with simple KEY=VAL
pairs on separate
lines (/etc/environment by default). You can change the default file to parse,
with the envfile
flag and turn it on or off by setting the
flag to 1 or 0 respectively.
Since setting of PAM environment variables can have side effects to other
modules, this module should be the last one on the stack.
