Pretty much, yes. The information is at:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/Linux-PAM-html/pam_appl-3.html

Look for the heading 
	3.2 What is expected of an application
	The conversation function

I was fairly vague.
The relevent information - or at least, as much as I have - is in the 
link above.

The conversation function must be capable of displaying or retrieving
text strings as requested by the PAM module that calls the function.
