|+ SHORT="A PAM module that can mount volumes for a user session"|
|+This module is aimed at environments with central file servers that a user|
|+wishes to mount on login and unmount on logout, such as (semi-)diskless stations|
|+where many users can logon and where statically mounting the entire /home from a|
|+server is a security risk, or listing all possible volumes in /etc/fstab is not|
|+Users can define their own list of volumes without having to change (possibly|
|+non-writable) global config files.|
|+Single sign-on feature -- the user needs to type the password just once|
|+Transparent mount process|
|+No stored passwords|
|+Volumes are unmounted on logout, freeing system resources and not leaving data|
|+The module also supports mounting local filesystems of any kind the normal mount|
|+utility supports, with extra code to make sure certain volumes are set up|
|+properly because often they need more than just a mount call, such as encrypted|
|+volumes. This includes SMB/CIFS, NCP, FUSE, dm-crypt and LUKS.|
