NAME

pam-tmpdir-helper - create safe temporary directory  

SYNOPSIS

<not invoked manually>  

DESCRIPTION

A helper binary for the pam_tmpdir module, pam-tmpdir-helper is invoked to create a secure temporary directory for the invoking user. It is quite simple and is called on behalf on the user by the session component of the pam_tmpdir module. It is not harmful to call it by hand, but will not give out any diagnostics, nor error messages, apart from its return value. It logs to syslog.

 

USAGE

This program is not intended to be called directly by users and will log to syslog if it is called imporperly (i.e., by some one trying exploit it).
