pam_localuser - require users to be listed in /etc/passwd
[debug] [file= /path/passwd]
pam_localuser is a PAM module to help implementing site-wide login policies,
where they typically include a subset of the network's users and a few
accounts that are local to a particular workstation. Using pam_localuser and
pam_wheel or pam_listfile is an effective way to restrict access to either
local users and/or a subset of the network's users.
This could also be implemented using pam_listfile.so and a very short awk script
invoked by cron, but it's common enough to have been separated out.
