3Here are some things to think about if you are interested in
4contributing to the Linux-PAM effort.

61. If you have a suggestion mail the pam-list!

82. TODO: Comments
9 ----- --------
10
11 [modules]
12
13pam_time should log an error if it denies access.
14
15pam_smartcard?? It has already started to happen. (Alex Yuriev has a
16 smart-card module...)
17
18pam_floppy?? A alternative login mechanism might involve
19 authenticating with a personal specially
20 formatted floppy!? (got to make some use of
21 all those strange Linux incompatible floppies
22 I keep getting from ISPs ;^)
23
24pam_??? If you are interested in another type of
25 authentication method--just make a module!
26 If you want it registered/some help, email the
27 list.

29 [misc]
30
31SVGA & X-conv Currently, libpam-misc contains a text-only
32 conversation function. A graphical one,
33 for X or SVGA would be very welcome,
34 [Ben Buxton is working on an X one (as of
35 1996/12/1)] applications like xlock
36 etc.. would benefit from this.

39Issues that need to be resolved:
40--------------------------------
41
42- can we support the use_mapped_pass flag without running into problems
43 with ITAR rules? [this problem is likely to mutate. The DCE-RFC
44 people are considering the addition of a mapping module type - one
45 that other modules can use to safely store passwords...]
46
47 - anyone know where someone to email for FREE legal advice/support?
