     NAME
          pam_permit - The promiscuous module

     SYNOPSIS
          pam_permit.so

     DESCRIPTION
          pam_permit is a PAM module that always permit access. It
          does nothing else.

          In the case of authentication, the user's name will be set
          to nobody if the application didn't set one. Many
          applications and PAM modules become confused if this name is
          unknown.

          This module is very dangerous. It should be used with
          extreme caution.

     OPTIONS
          This module does not recognise any options.

          provided.

     RETURN VALUES
          PAM_SUCCESS
              This module always returns this value.

     EXAMPLES
          Add this line to your other login entries to disable account
          management, but continue to permit users to log in.
