Summary: Simple RSA authentication with PKCS#11 modules
pam_p11 is a pluggable authentication module (PAM) package for
using cryptographic PKCS#11 tokens such as smart cards and USB
crypto tokens for local authentication.
pam_p11 uses libp11 to access any PKCS#11 module but it is
primarily developed for and tested with OpenSC PKCS#11.
pam_p11 implements two authentication modules:
* pam_p11_openssh authenticates the user against public keys
found in OpenSSH ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.
* pam_p11_opensc authenticates the user against certificates
found in ~/.eid/authorized_certificates_. It is compatible with
the older opensc "pamopensc" authentication module (eid mode).
pam_p11 is very simple, it has no config file, no options other
than the PKCS#11 module file, does not know about certificate
chains, certificate authorities, revocation lists or OCSP.
Perfect for the small installation with no frills.
pam_p11 was written by an international team and is licensed as
Open Source software under the LGPL license.
