SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In security/pam_appl.h int pam_get_data const pam_handle_t *pamh const char *module_data_name const void **data

DESCRIPTION

The pam_get_data function looks up the opaque object associated with the string specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context specified by the pamh argument. A pointer to the object is stored in the location pointed to by the data argument. If pam_get_data fails, the data argument is untouched.

This function and its counterpart pam_set_data(3) are useful for managing data that are meaningful only to a particular service module.

RETURN VALUES

The pam_get_data function returns one of the following values:
[PAM_NO_MODULE_DATA]
  Module data not found.
[PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]
  System error.
