1This is the README for pam_xauthority, a PAM SESSION module which sets
2$XAUTHORITY to a securely created file in /tmp in pam_open_session,
3and unlinks the file in pam_close_session.  This is useful if you are
4in an environment where home directories are on network filesystems
5and don't want to share your xauthority files.

7One uses the module by adding the line
8
9session    optional   pam_xauthority.so
10
11in /etc/pam.d/ssh.
12
13It supports two options: debug (for debugging output) and an option
14dir=/var/tmp changing the directory that it places xauthority files
15into.  So, the pam-xauthority session line might look like:
16
17session    optional   pam_xauthority.so debug dir=/var/tmp
