    Command:

    pam_acct_mgmt

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <security/pam_appl.h>
    
           int pam_acct_mgmt(pam_handle_t *pamh, int flags);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The pam_acct_mgmt function is used to determine if the users account is
           valid. It checks for authentication token and account expiration and
           verifies access restrictions. It is typically called after the user has
           been authenticated.
    
           The pamh argument is an authentication handle obtained by a prior call
           to pam_start(). The flags argument is the binary or of zero or more of
           the following values:
    
           PAM_SILENT
               Do not emit any messages.
    
           PAM_DISALLOW_NULL_AUTHTOK
               The PAM module service should return PAM_NEW_AUTHTOK_REQD if the
               user has a null authentication token.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUES

           PAM_ACCT_EXPIRED
               User account has expired.
    
           PAM_AUTH_ERR
               Authentication failure.
    
           PAM_NEW_AUTHTOK_REQD
               The user account is valid but their authentication token is
               expired. The correct response to this return-value is to require
               that the user satisfies the pam_chauthtok() function before
               obtaining service. It may not be possible for some applications to
               do this. In such cases, the user should be denied access until such
               time as they can update their password.
    
           PAM_PERM_DENIED
               Permission denied.
    
           PAM_SUCCESS
               The authentication token was successfully updated.
    
           PAM_USER_UNKNOWN
               User unknown to password service.
