SYNOPSIS

#include <security/pam_appl.h>
int pam_chauthtok(pam_handle_t *pamh, int flags);
 

DESCRIPTION

The pam_chauthtok function is used to change the authentication token for a given user (as indicated by the state associated with the handle pamh).

The pamh argument is an authentication handle obtained by a prior call to pam_start(). The flags argument is the binary or of zero or more of the following values:

PAM_SILENT

Do not emit any messages.

A module was unable to obtain the old authentication token.

PAM_PERM_DENIED

Permission denied.
