The openpam_ttyconv() function is a standard conversation function suitable for use on TTY devices. It should be adequate for the needs of most text-based interactive programs.
The openpam_ttyconv() function allows the application to specify a timeout for user input by setting the global integer variable openpam_ttyconv_timeout to the length of the timeout in seconds.

The openpam_ttyconv() function returns one of the following values:
[PAM_SUCCESS]
Success.
[PAM_BUF_ERR]
Memory buffer error.
[PAM_CONV_ERR]
Conversation failure.
[PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]
System error.

openpam_nullconv(3), pam(3), pam_prompt(3), pam_strerror(3), pam_vprompt(3)

The openpam_ttyconv() function is an OpenPAM extension.

The openpam_ttyconv() function and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and Network Associates Laboratories, the Security Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (“CBOSS”), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program.
The OpenPAM library is maintained by Dag-Erling Smørgrav <des@des.no>.
