PAM Authentication Module for Using Cryptographic Tokens
Pam_p11 is a pluggable authentication module (pam) package for using
cryptographic tokens, such as smart cards and usb crypto tokens, for
Pam_p11 uses libp11 to access any PKCS#11 module. It should be
compatible with any implementation, but it is primarily developed using
Pam_p11 implements two authentication modules:
* pam_p11_openssh authenticates the user using openssh
* pam_p11_opensc authenticates the user using certificates found in
~/.eid/authorized_certificates. It is compatible with the older
opensc "pam_opensc" authentication module (eid mode).
Pam_p11 is very simple. It has no configuration file, no other options
than the PKCS#11 module file, and does not know about certificate
chains, certificate authorities, revocation lists, or OCSP. It is
perfect for the small installation with no frills.
