 Writing PAM-Capable Applications

O'Reilly tells us how to build PAM-Capable applications.

"If an application is PAM-enabled, the system administrator is responsible for determining the authentication methods used, and PAM is responsible for performing the authentication. This lets the application developer concentrate on writing the main application -- and ensures that the application isn't made out-of-date solely because of an outdated authentication schema."
