Disabling logging during pam_authenticate



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


Is there any way to disable logging of failures during
pam_authenticate?

I ask because OpenSSH is currently generating an extra "authentication
failure..." message at each login.

The problem is that OpenSSH likes to try a blank password attempting
any other authentication. This is a shortcut for anonymous SSH servers
(e.g. OpenBSD's CVS repositories). I expect that this test will fail
in the vast majority of cases, but it speeds things up significantly
when it succeeds.

A way to disable authentication failure delays on a per-function call
basis would be great as well.
