PAM_Extern is a PAM module that hands the username and password to an external application or shellscript for further handling.

The theory is that while a lot of people might be able to create authentication schemes, few are are able to do so using C and the PAM library.

Installation:

make
make install

What's New in This Release:

The password is now passed on stdin instead of an environment variable to prevent it from showing up in "ps auxe".
Every "malloc" call is now checked for success.
Debug output is now realized with PAM's D macro instead of fprintf(stderr) and _pam_overwrite and _pam_drop are used instead of free().
