PAM_SEPERMIT(8)             Linux-PAM Manual             PAM_SEPERMIT(8)

NAME         top

       pam_sepermit - PAM module to allow/deny login depending on
       SELinux enforcement state

SYNOPSIS         top

       pam_sepermit.so [debug] [conf=/path/to/config/file]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The pam_sepermit module allows or denies login depending on
       SELinux enforcement state.

       When the user which is logging in matches an entry in the config
       file he is allowed access only when the SELinux is in enforcing
       mode. Otherwise he is denied access. For users not matching any
       entry in the config file the pam_sepermit module returns
       PAM_IGNORE return value.

       The config file contains a list of user names one per line with
       optional arguments. If the name is prefixed with @ character it
       means that all users in the group name match. If it is prefixed
       with a % character the SELinux user is used to match against the
       name instead of the account name. Note that when SELinux is
       disabled the SELinux user assigned to the account cannot be
       determined. This means that such entries are never matched when
       SELinux is disabled and pam_sepermit will return PAM_IGNORE.

       See sepermit.conf(5) for details.
