Re: PAM+RADIUS Attribute Value Pairs

Hash: SHA1

Hi Leonardo,

I'm not into the whole radius thing, but if I understand you correctly,
you want to have a possibility to return some data to the application
from your PAM module.

I faced the same problem with my student research project, and I used an
extended conversation function with a new "message-type" as a solution.
This of course breaks compability with many applications (to be more
exact: it breaks compability, if the authorization server - in my case a
XACML-Server - returns some attribute-value-pairs). I solved the problem
by denying any access if the application does not understand my messages.

Also I had to put a lot of effort into the whole encoding/decoding-part,
because the PAM conversation-interface only allows character pointers,
while XACML allows typed attributes with multiple values...

Hope, this helps you.
