SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In security/pam_appl.h
.In security/openpam.h int openpam_nullconv int n const struct pam_message **msg struct pam_response **resp void *data

DESCRIPTION

The openpam_nullconv function is a null conversation function suitable for applications that want to use PAM but don’t support interactive dialog with the user. Such applications should set PAM_AUTHTOK to whatever authentication token they’ve obtained on their own before calling pam_authenticate(3) and / or pam_chauthtok(3), and their PAM configuration should specify the use_first_pass option for all modules that require access to the authentication token, to make sure they use PAM_AUTHTOK rather than try to query the user.

RETURN VALUES

The openpam_nullconv function returns one of the following values:
[PAM_CONV_ERR]
  Conversation failure.

SEE ALSO

openpam_ttyconv(3), pam(3), pam_authenticate(3), pam_chauthtok(3), pam_prompt(3), pam_set_item(3), pam_strerror(3), pam_vprompt(3)

STANDARDS

The openpam_nullconv function is an OpenPAM extension.
