Login Manager PAM Capable

The Appx Login Manager can now use PAM to validate user ids/passwords.


The Appx Login Manager can now use PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) to validate user ids/passwords. PAM is supported primarly on Linux based systems, but may also work for other Operating Systems if they support PAM.

To configure the Appx Login Manager to use PAM, you must set the following parameters in the service .ini file:

AuthenticationMethod = PAM

PAMService = appxpam # name of service in /etc/pam.d

PAMService points to a PAM Policy file (in the /etc/pam.d directory on Linux systems). This can be an existing policy file, or you can create a new one for Appx logins. This is case sensitive if the O/S file names are case sensitive. See the attached AppxPam.ini and appxpam for examples.

You should be able to use most authentication plugins supported by PAM.

Consult your O/S documentation on configuring PAM for your O/S.
