<flag name="cracklib">
Enable pam_cracklib module on system authentication stack. This
produces warnings when changing password to something easily
crackable. It requires the same USE flag to be enabled on
<pkg>sys-libs/pam</pkg> or system login might be impossible.
<flag name="consolekit">
Enable pam_ck_connector module on local system logins. This
allows for console logins to make use of ConsoleKit
<flag name="elogind">
Use pam_elogind module to register user sessions with elogind.
<flag name="systemd">
Use pam_systemd module to register user sessions in the systemd
control group hierarchy.
<flag name="debug">
Enable debug information logging on syslog(3) for all the
modules supporting this in the system authentication and system
login stacks.
<flag name="passwdqc">
Enable pam_passwdqc module on system auth stack for password
quality validation. This is an alternative to pam_cracklib
producing warnings, rejecting or providing example passwords
when changing your system password. It is used by default by
OpenWall GNU/*/Linux and by FreeBSD.
<flag name="mktemp">
Enable pam_mktemp module on system auth stack for session
handling. This module creates a private temporary directory for
the user, and sets TMP and TMPDIR accordingly.
<flag name="pam_ssh">
Enable pam_ssh module on system auth stack for authentication
and session handling. This module will accept as password the
passphrase of a private SSH key (one of ~/.ssh/id_rsa,
~/.ssh/id_dsa or ~/.ssh/identity), and will spawn an ssh-agent
instance to cache the open key.
<flag name="sha512">
Switch Linux-PAM's pam_unix module to use sha512 for passwords
hashes rather than MD5. This option requires
<pkg>sys-libs/pam</pkg> version 1.0.1 built against
<pkg>sys-libs/glibc</pkg> version 2.7, if it's built against an
earlier version, it will silently be ignored, and MD5 hashes
will be used. All the passwords changed after this USE flag is
enabled will be saved to the shadow file hashed using SHA512
function. The password previously saved will be left
untouched. Please note that while SHA512-hashed passwords will
still be recognised if the USE flag is removed, the shadow file
will not be compatible with systems using an earlier glibc
<flag name="pam_krb5">
Enable pam_krb5 module on system auth stack, as an alternative
to pam_unix. If Kerberos authentication succeed, only pam_unix
will be ignore, and all the other modules will proceed as usual,
including Gnome Keyring and other session modules. It requires
<pkg>sys-libs/pam</pkg> as PAM implementation.
<flag name="minimal">
Disables the standard PAM modules that provide extra information
to users on login; this includes pam_tally (and pam_tally2 for
Linux PAM 1.1 and later), pam_lastlog, pam_motd and other
similar modules. This might not be a good idea on a multi-user
system but could reduce slightly the overhead on single-user
non-networked systems.
<flag name="nullok">
Enable the nullok option with the pam_unix module. This allows
people to login with blank passwords.
<flag name="securetty">
Enable pam_securetty module in the login stack. Not generally
relevant anymore as the login stack only refers to local logins
and local terminals imply secure access in the first place.
