Table 13-40 defines the library name and shared object name for the libpam library
The Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) interfaces allow applications to request authentication via a system administrator defined mechanism, known as a service.
A single service name,
other, shall always be present.
The behavior of this service shall be determined by the system administrator.
Additional service names may also exist.
Note: Future versions of this specification might define additional service names.
The behavior of the interfaces in this library is specified by the following specifications:
|[LSB] This Specification|
An LSB conforming implementation shall provide the generic functions for Pluggable Authentication API specified in Table 13-41, with the full mandatory functionality as described in the referenced underlying specification.
