Re: Dynamically creating users if !exist



Yes, though I'd have no clue as to why. The whole intent of PAM is to make the security of a device more easily configurable, and just opening the door for users to log in with a new user ID opens a LOT of security holes.

If you have programming skills, you can create a module that catches the pam_sm_authenticate function, checks for the user, and if not found, creates the user and returns success.

I've looked at creating a user whose sole purpose is to create users,
but I don't want to do that.

How can I get something like this working?

Thanks,
