sepermit.conf(5) configuration file for the pam_sepermit module


The lines of the configuration file have the following syntax:


The user can be specified in the following manner:

• a username

• a groupname, with @group syntax. This should not be confused with netgroups.

• a SELinux user name with %seuser syntax.

The recognized options are:


Only single login session will be allowed for the user and the user's processes will be killed on logout.


The module will never return PAM_SUCCESS status for the user. It will return PAM_IGNORE if SELinux is in the enforcing mode, and PAM_AUTH_ERR otherwise. It is useful if you want to support passwordless guest users and other confined users with passwords simultaneously.

The lines which start with # character are comments and are ignored.


These are some example lines which might be specified in /etc/security/sepermit.conf.
