The pam_ccreds module provides the means for Linux workstations to locally authenticate using an enterprise identity when the network is unavailable. Used in conjunction with the nss_updatedb utility, it provides a mechanism for disconnected use of network directories. They are designed to work with pam_ldap and nss_ldap, also available from PADL.

Here are some benefits of using pam_ccreds:

Uses the Pluggable Authentication Module API defined in OSF DCE RFC 86.0 (with Linux-PAM extensions)
Supports any PAM authentication module
Secure cached credentials provides for verification only

The pam_ccache module supports Linux only.

The present implementation requires Linux-PAM as it takes advantage of the extended configuration syntax of pam.conf. (See the example configuration file included with the
software for an example of configuring it with pam_ldap.) On platforms that do not use Linux-PAM you would need a wrapper PAM module to choose an action based on the
previous module's return code.

What's New in This Release:

build fix (include syslog.h)
