           Summary: Review Request: pam_usb:  PAM module for use with DSA
                    key pairs and removable devices
           Product: Fedora Extras
           Version: devel
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.pamusb.org
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: Package Review
        AssignedTo: gdk at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: dmitry at butskoy.name

Spec Url: http://dmitry.butskoy.name/pam_usb/pam_usb.spec
SRPM Url: http://dmitry.butskoy.name/pam_usb/pam_usb-0.3.2-1.src.rpm

This PAM module provides authentication through DSA private/public keys.
Public keys placed on the target computer, whereas private keys are stored
on some removable device, including USB storages/flash drives, cdroms,
floppies, etc.

Any kind of mountable devices (not removable only) can be used.

Due to using of DSA key pairs, the passwordless authentication can be organized
(if a private key is stored not crypted on the media).

Additional info:

I separate hotplug stuff as an additional binary package, default not built (IMHO, it looks like not related to pam_usb, still not documented, etc.)

There is an article about pam_usb, a tip of the week at fedoranews site: http://fedoranews.org/mediawiki/index.php/Tip_of_the_Week_2005-08-08
