pam_radius_auth.c =================== This is the PAM to RADIUS authentication module. It allows any Linux or Solaris machine to become a RADIUS client for authentication and password change requests. You will need to supply your own RADIUS server to perform the actual authentication. The latest version has a simple merger of the original pam_radius session accounting code which will work *only* on Linux. See INSTALL for instructions on building and installing this module. I have successfully used it for RADIUS authentication on RedHat 4.2, RedHat 5.x, RedHat 6.x, and Solaris 2.6. A number of options are supported by this module. See USAGE for more details. Care should be taken when configuring RADIUS authentication. Your RADIUS server should have a minimal set of machines in it's 'clients' file. The server should NOT be visible to the world at large, but should be contained behind a firewall. If your RADIUS server is visible from the Internet, a number of attacks become possible. Any additional questions can be directed to: Alan DeKok (email@example.com) For the latest version and updates, see the main web or ftp site: http://www.freeradius.org/ ftp://ftp.freeradius.org/pub/radius/ The pam_radius_auth module based on an old version of Cristian Gafton's pam_radius.c, and on an Apache module I wrote a while back. (mod_auth_radius.c, also on ftp://ftp.freeradius.org/pub/radius/). The source contains a full suite of RADIUS functions, instead of using libpwdb. It makes sense, because we want it to compile out of the box on Linux and Solaris 2.6. I also wasn't able to find much documentation for RADIUS authentication support in libpwdb, so I rolled my own. There are minimal restrictions on using the code, as set out in the disclaimer and copyright notice in pam_radius_auth.c. Building it is straightforward: use GNU make, and type 'make'. If you've got some other weird make, you'll have to edit the Makefile to remove the GNU make directives 'ifeq', 'else', etc. Alan DeKok <firstname.lastname@example.org>
