PAM_GET_ITEM(3) Library Functions Manual PAM_GET_ITEM(3) NAME pam_get_item -- get PAM information LIBRARY Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam) SYNOPSIS #include <sys/types.h> #include <security/pam_appl.h> int pam_get_item(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int item_type, const void **item); DESCRIPTION The pam_get_item() function stores a pointer to the item specified by the item_type argument in the location pointed to by the item argument. The item is retrieved from the PAM context specified by the pamh argument. If pam_get_item() fails, the item argument is untouched. The following item types are recognized: PAM_SERVICE The name of the requesting service. PAM_USER The name of the user the application is trying to authenticate. PAM_TTY The name of the current terminal. PAM_RHOST The name of the applicant's host. PAM_CONV A struct pam_conv describing the current conversation function. PAM_AUTHTOK The current authentication token. PAM_OLDAUTHTOK The expired authentication token. PAM_RUSER The name of the applicant. PAM_USER_PROMPT The prompt to use when asking the applicant for a user name to authenticate as. PAM_AUTHTOK_PROMPT The prompt to use when asking the applicant for an authentication token. PAM_OLDAUTHTOK_PROMPT The prompt to use when asking the applicant for an expired authentication token prior to changing it. PAM_HOST The name of the host the application runs on. PAM_SOCKADDR The sockaddr_storage of the applicants's host. PAM_NUSER The ``nested'' user if this is a login on top of a previous one. See pam_start(3) for a description of struct pam_conv. RETURN VALUES The pam_get_item() function returns one of the following values: [PAM_SYMBOL_ERR] Invalid symbol. [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR] System error.
