Pam_p11 is a plugable authentication module (pam) package for using crpytographic tokes such as smart cards and usb crypto tokens for authentication.

Pam_p11 uses libp11 to access any PKCS#11 module. The project should be compatible with any implementation, but it is primarely developed using OpenSC.

Pam_p11 implements two authentication modules:

- pam_p11_openssh authenticates the user using his openssh ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.
- 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 config file, no options other than the PKCS#11 module file, does not know about certificate chains, certificate authorities, revocation lists or OCSP. Perfect for the small installation with no frills.

Pam_p11 was written by an international team and is licensed as Open Source software under the LGPL license.
