what system libraries controls login?


What binnaries and/or libs handle the system login and shell access? I'm trying to find the best way to establish a system login using C/C++. Suggested reading material?

Read about PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules). Not sure what you want to archieve, but will probably help.

Thanks, looks like PAM was exactly what I was looking for. I needed to implement a login system into a program I was writing and was hoping I could just use the system login mechanism. Looks like this will do nicley.

Thanks again!
