SYNOPSIS

ss5 usually reads the password file, ss5.passwd, in the /etc/ss5 directory. If SS5_PAM_AUTH option is set, ss5 call PAM api to perform Username/Password.

DESCRIPTION

To enable PAM authentication with the ss5 daemon you must set SS5_PAM_AUTH options in the ss5.conf file. Before PAM authentication works, you have to create ss5 file in the /etc/pam.d directory and configure it (see /usr/share/doc/ss5/ss5.pam sample file). On Solaris, you have to edit /etc/pam.conf file.

Like for password file (see ss5.passwd), adding PAM authentication requires 3 steps:

1. Create the PAM configuration file with one entry per line. To create an entry for using /etc/passwd like source, add this line to the /etc/pam.d/ss5 file:
  auth required /lib/security/pam_unix.so

2. Edit the auth line in the configuration file to require Username/Password authentication. The configuration file may contain auth lines such as:
  auth - - -

To add username and password authentication, change the line to:
  auth - - u

set SS5_PAM_AUTH

3. Restart the server.
