PAM_DENY(8)                 System Manager's Manual                PAM_DENY(8)

     pam_deny - Deny PAM module

     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_deny [options]

     The deny authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for
     all the PAM categories: authentication, account management, session
     management and password management.  In terms of the module-type
     parameter, these are the "auth", "account", "session", and "password"

     The Deny module will universally deny all requests.  It is primarily of
     use during testing, and to "null-out" unwanted functionality.

     The following options may be passed to the module:

     debug        syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn      suppress warning messages to the user.  These messages
                  include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was

                  for password management ("password" feature), return
                  PAM_IGNORE in the preliminary phase.  This allows the module
                  to be used (with the "required" flag) at the end of a chain
                  of "sufficient" modules with this service (where the entire
                  chain is in fact run twice).

     syslog(3), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
