RE: How to determine the auth method used?

I understand the goal of PAM is to obscure this from the application developer.... however our application needs to perform one or more actions based on what type of auth method was used to grant the user access. Is there some other way to do this, other than by determining the auth method?

You cannot. That is the principle of PAM: The application does not
need to know anything.
