MKHOMEDIR_HELPER(8)       (06/08/2020)        MKHOMEDIR_HELPER(8)

     NAME
          mkhomedir_helper - Helper binary that creates home
          directories

     SYNOPSIS
          mkhomedir_helper {user} [umask [ path-to-skel ]]

     DESCRIPTION
          mkhomedir_helper is a helper program for the pam_mkhomedir
          module that creates home directories and populates them with
          contents of the specified skel directory.

          The default value of umask is 0022 and the default value of
          path-to-skel is /etc/skel.

          The helper is separated from the module to not require
          direct access from login SELinux domains to the contents of
          user home directories. The SELinux domain transition happens
          when the module is executing the mkhomedir_helper.

          The helper never touches home directories if they already
          exist.
