my understanding, for the keywords in a pam conf file:
requisite: if FAIL then STOP and return "failure"; otherwise, proceed
required: if FAIL continue but eventually return "failure"; if
succeed and last on the stack, return "succeed"
sufficient: if SUCCEED then STOP and return "succeed"; otherwise,
proceed down the stack, return fail if last on the stack
optional: only return SUCCEED if at the bottom of the stack and no
other failures (more or less ... I really don't care about this one)
my question is this:
supposedly "required" is required completely but "sufficient"
contradicts this. If you have a sufficient before a required, it makes
the required, well, not required.
Am I reading this correctly?
