The PAM configuration file, pam.conf(4), is used to configure PAM service modules for system services, such as login, rlogin, su, and cron. The system administrator manages this file. An incorrect order of entries in pam.conf can cause unforeseen side effects. For example, a badly configured pam.conf can lock out users so that single-user mode becomes necessary for repair. For information on PAM configuration, see PAM Configuration (Reference) in Oracle Solaris Administration: Security Services.
