12.21. Interfaces for libpam

Table 12-60 defines the library name and shared object name for the libpam library

Table 12-60. libpam Definition


The Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) interfaces allow applications to request authentication via a system administrator defined mechanism, known as a service.

A single service name, other, shall always be present. The behavior of this service shall be determined by the system administrator. Additional service names may also exist.

Note: Future versions of this specification might define additional service names.

The behavior of the interfaces in this library is specified by the following specifications:

[LSB] This Specification

12.21.1. Pluggable Authentication API Interfaces for Pluggable Authentication API

An LSB conforming implementation shall provide the generic functions for Pluggable Authentication API specified in Table 12-61, with the full mandatory functionality as described in the referenced underlying specification.
