NAME

pam_set_data -- set module information

LIBRARY

Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h> #include <security/pam_appl.h> int pam_set_data(pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name, void *data, void (*cleanup)(pam_handle_t *pamh, void *data, int pam_end_status));

DESCRIPTION

The pam_set_data() function associates a pointer to an opaque object with an arbitrary string specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context specified by the pamh argument. If not NULL, the cleanup argument should point to a function responsible for releasing the resources associated with the object. This function and its counterpart pam_get_data(3) are useful for managing data that are meaningful only to a particular service module.

RETURN VALUES

The pam_set_data() function returns one of the following values: [PAM_BUF_ERR] Memory buffer error. [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR] System error.
