Chapter 24. Pam-Based Distributed Authentication


This chapter should help you to deploy Winbind-based authentication on any PAM-enabled UNIX/Linux system. Winbind can be used to enable User-Level application access authentication from any MS Windows NT Domain, MS Windows 200x Active Directory-based domain, or any Samba-based domain environment. It will also help you to configure PAM-based local host access controls that are appropriate to your Samba configuration.

In addition to knowing how to configure Winbind into PAM, you will learn generic PAM management possibilities and in particular how to deploy tools like pam_smbpass.so to your advantage.

The use of Winbind requires more than PAM configuration alone. Please refer to Chapter 20, Winbind: Use of Domain Accounts , for further information regarding Winbind.
