How does PAM Authentication Work?
How does PAM Authentication Work? I want to setup an SSH login and I was reading about PAM authentication as being a stronger form of password authentication. From a high level perspective, how does this work?
Im definately no expert on PAM but I do know a little about it.
It is really almost transparent even for the admin, once it is setup. I use it because I like the logging and it is very easy to setup. You can have each service log and authenticate differently. And I think that most distros use PAM by default so you never even have to touch it.
If you have any specific questions about it then reply back and I might be able to help with them.
