1OpenPAM is an open source PAM library that focuses on simplicity,
2correctness, and cleanliness.
3
4OpenPAM aims to gather the best features of Solaris PAM, XSSO and
5Linux-PAM, plus some innovations of its own.  In areas where these
6implementations disagree, OpenPAM tries to remain compatible with
7Solaris, at the expense of XSSO conformance and Linux-PAM
8compatibility.
9
10These are some of OpenPAM's features:
11
12   - Implements the complete PAM API as described in the original PAM
13     paper and in OSF-RFC 86.0; this corresponds to the full XSSO API
14     except for mappings and secondary authentication.  Also
15     implements some extensions found in Solaris 9.
16
17   - Extends the API with several useful and time-saving functions.
18
19   - Performs strict checking of return values from service modules.
20
21   - Reads configuration from /etc/pam.d/, /etc/pam.conf,
22     /usr/local/etc/pam.d/ and /usr/local/etc/pam.conf, in that order;
23     this will be made configurable in a future release.
