> Is there a PAM plugin for the TACACS+ authentication?

I don't think so but a friend of mine wrote a simple routine
that does tacacs authentication. If I can find on my archives
his e-mail you could use it as a base for hacking (perhaps
with the aid of pam_auth_radius or some other module)

there is another way, you can install a radius server and the
tacp2radd conversion utility from


(it will sit around listening tacacs connections, translating them
to radius and sending back the responses from the radius server
in tacacs format)

with it, you can use the pam_auth_radius or pam_lradius modules
