Initial import of openpam-20040210 as security/openpam.
OpenPAM is an open source PAM library that focuses on simplicity,
correctness, and cleanliness.
OpenPAM aims to gather the best features of Solaris PAM, XSSO and
Linux-PAM, plus some innovations of its own. In areas where these
implementations disagree, OpenPAM tries to remain compatible with
Solaris, at the expense of XSSO conformance and Linux-PAM
These are some of OpenPAM's features:
- Implements the complete PAM API as described in the original PAM
paper and in OSF-RFC 86.0; this corresponds to the full XSSO API
except for mappings and secondary authentication. Also
implements some extensions found in Solaris 9.
- Extends the API with several useful and time-saving functions.
- Performs strict checking of return values from service modules.
