OPENPAM_NULLCONV(3)        Library Functions Manual        OPENPAM_NULLCONV(3)

NAME
     openpam_nullconv -- null conversation function

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

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

     int
     openpam_nullconv(int n, const struct pam_message **msg,
         struct pam_response **resp, void *data);

DESCRIPTION
     The openpam_nullconv() function is a null conversation function suitable
     for applications that want to use PAM but don't support interactive
     dialog with the user.  Such applications should set PAM_AUTHTOK to
     whatever authentication token they've obtained on their own before
     calling pam_authenticate(3) and / or pam_chauthtok(3), and their PAM
     configuration should specify the use_first_pass option for all modules
     that require access to the authentication token, to make sure they use
     PAM_AUTHTOK rather than try to query the user.

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

     [PAM_CONV_ERR]      Conversation failure.

SEE ALSO
     openpam_ttyconv(3), pam(3), pam_authenticate(3), pam_chauthtok(3),
     pam_prompt(3), pam_set_item(3), pam_strerror(3), pam_vprompt(3)

STANDARDS
     The openpam_nullconv() function is an OpenPAM extension.
