Pamtester is a tiny utility program to test the pluggable authentication
modules (PAM) facility, which is a de facto standard of unified
authentication management mechanism in many unices and similar OSes
including Solaris, HP-UX, *BSD, MacOSX and Linux.
While specifically designed to help PAM module authors to test their
modules, that might also be handy for system administrators interested
in building a centralised authentication system using common standards
such as NIS, SASL and LDAP.
