Well I hope that I am able to answer your question. I am still very new to the configuration of PAM and its modules.
I managed to achieve what I did using the pam_console.so
. I added this option to the system-config-network
file in the /etc/pam.d
. I am not sure if it was the addition of that module or if it was me just messing around with the entries in that file that enabled the ability to bypass the login or not.
and I didn't use the sudo NOPASSWD entry because I was not aware of it before to be honest
. As I mentioned before I still very new to PAM and security in general so I am doing my best to learn
hope I was able to somewhat answer your question
Sorry for the late response
