OPENPAM_GET_FEATURE(3)     Library Functions Manual     OPENPAM_GET_FEATURE(3)

NAME
     openpam_get_feature -- query the state of an optional feature

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>
     #include <security/openpam.h>

     int
     openpam_get_feature(int feature, int *onoff);

DESCRIPTION
     This function is experimental and may be modified or removed in a future
     release without prior warning.

     The openpam_get_feature() function stores the current state of the
     specified feature in the variable pointed to by its onoff argument.

     The following features are recognized:

     OPENPAM_RESTRICT_SERVICE_NAME
                         Disallow path separators in service names.  This
                         feature is enabled by default.  Disabling it allows
                         the application to specify the path to the desired
                         policy file directly.

     OPENPAM_VERIFY_POLICY_FILE
                         Verify the ownership and permissions of the policy
                         file and the path leading up to it.  This feature is
                         enabled by default.

     OPENPAM_RESTRICT_MODULE_NAME
                         Disallow path separators in module names.  This
                         feature is disabled by default.  Enabling it prevents
                         the use of modules in non-standard locations.

     OPENPAM_VERIFY_MODULE_FILE
                         Verify the ownership and permissions of each loadable
                         module and the path leading up to it.  This feature
                         is enabled by default.

RETURN VALUES
     The openpam_get_feature() function returns one of the following values:

     [PAM_SYMBOL_ERR]    Invalid symbol.

SEE ALSO
