pamusb-check

Synopsis

Usage: pamusb-check [--help] [--debug] [--config=path] [--service=name] [--dump]
[--quiet] <username>

Description

pamusb-check can simulate authentication through the pam_usb engine. It is useful for both testing purposes (to check the pam_usb configuration without having to try with a real program), but also for scripting. pamusb-check's exit code is 0 if the authentication was successful, 1 otherwise. It is used by pamusb-agent to check the device.
