PAM_Extern is a PAM module that hands the username and password to an external application or shellscript for further handling.

The theory is that while a lot of people might be able to create authentication schemes, few are are able to do so using C and the PAM library.


make install

What's New in This Release:
pam_extern now passes the password as an environment variable instead of on the command line.
This prevents the password from showing up in the output of "ps".
