PKCS #11 PAM Module
This package is based on the package 'pam_pkcs11' from project 'openSUSE:Factory'.
This Linux PAM module allows X.509 certificate-based user
authentication. The certificate and its dedicated private key are
thereby accessed by means of an appropriate PKCS #11 module. For
verification of the users' certificates, locally stored CA certificates
as well as online or locally accessible CRLs are used.
Additionally, the package includes pam_pkcs11-related tools: -
pkcs11_eventmgr: Generate actions on card insert, removal, or
- pklogin_finder: Get the login name that maps to a certificate
- pkcs11_inspect: Inspect the contents of a certificate
- make_hash_links: Create hash link directories for storing CAs and
