Re: pam session

Does anybody know why openssh (openssh-2.9p1) on a linux system does not call
pam_open_session if no pty is used? In this way the session modules (in
/etc/pam.d) are not activated.
There are other problems with the interaction between openssh and PAM as
well. For instance, if you have users that have a null password, which we
use when the user's shell is responsible for doing one-time password
token authentication, you get a core dump. We've had to install passwords
for these users (by calling a different PAM module that authenticates
with our timecard database) to get around this.
sshd is also the only application that has this problem. telnet
and rlogin do not.
