Secure Mac Login + Local and Remote Linux with PAM

Meet PAM, the Pluggable Authentication Module

PAM is a software component that implements the Linux Pluggable Authentication Module specification, thus providing dynamic authentication support for applications and services in a Linux environment.

PAM allows companies to add strong authentication using OATH or FIDO (e.g. Push U2F) authentication to protect any Linux system via direct login, SSH, and other Linux apps. The SurePassID Pluggable Authentication Module component automatically interfaces with the SurePassID Authentication Server. This seamless system allows admins to use the same strong authentication credentials on all servers across the entire enterprise, further extending the versatility of the SurePassID Authentication solution.

The SurePassID Pluggable Authentication Module is a downloadable source code available from a private GitHub repository. There are instructions for building, configuring and installing on Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, and iOS platforms. SurePassID Pluggable Authentication Module is easily adaptable for other PAM-based systems.

For access to the repository, please contact SurePassID.
