OpenPAM

OpenPAM is an open source PAM library that focuses on simplicity, correctness, and cleanliness. Its aim is to gather the best features of Solaris PAM, XSSO and Linux-PAM, plus some innovations of its own. In areas where these implementations disagree, OpenPAM tries to remain compatible with Solaris, at the expense of XSSO conformance and Linux-PAM compatibility.

OpenPAM is available under the 3-clause BSD license. See the full license and copyright statement for details.

OpenPAM is currently used by FreeBSD, PC-BSD, Dragonfly BSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X and a few Linux distributions.
