    Command:

    pam_set_data

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <security/pam_modules.h>
    
           int pam_set_data(pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name,
                            void *data,
                            void (*cleanup)(pam_handle_t *pamh, void *data, int error_status));
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The pam_set_data function associates a pointer to an object with the
           (hopefully) unique string module_data_name in the PAM context specified
           by the pamh argument.
    
           PAM modules may be dynamically loadable objects. In general such files
           should not contain static variables. This function and its counterpart
           pam_get_data(3), provide a mechanism for a module to associate some
           data with the handle pamh. Typically a module will call the
           pam_set_data function to register some data under a (hopefully) unique
           module_data_name. The data is available for use by other modules too
           but not by an application. Since this functions stores only a pointer
           to the data, the module should not modify or free the content of it.
    
           The function cleanup() is associated with the data and, if non-NULL, it
           is called when this data is over-written or following a call to
           pam_end(3).
    
           The error_status argument is used to indicate to the module the sort of
           action it is to take in cleaning this data item. As an example,
           Kerberos creates a ticket file during the authentication phase, this
           file might be associated with a data item. When pam_end(3) is called by
           the module, the error_status carries the return value of the
           pam_authenticate(3) or other libpam function as appropriate. Based on
           this value the Kerberos module may choose to delete the ticket file
           (authentication failure) or leave it in place.
    
           The error_status may have been logically OR?d with either of the
           following two values:
    
           PAM_DATA_REPLACE
               When a data item is being replaced (through a second call to
               pam_set_data) this mask is used. Otherwise, the call is assumed to
               be from pam_end(3).
    
           PAM_DATA_SILENT
               Which indicates that the process would prefer to perform the
               cleanup() quietly. That is, discourages logging/messages to the
               user.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUES

           PAM_BUF_ERR
               Memory buffer error.
    
           PAM_SUCCESS
