Manual Section... (8) - page: pam_umask
NAMEpam_umask - PAM module to set the file mode creation mask
- pam_umask.so [debug] [silent] [usergroups] [umask=mask]
The PAM module tries to get the umask value from the following places in the following order:
- • umask= argument
- • umask= entry of the users GECOS field
- • pri= entry of the users GECOS field
- • ulimit= entry of the users GECOS field
- • UMASK= entry from /etc/default/login
- • UMASK entry from /etc/login.defs
- Print debug information.
- Don't print informative messages.
- If the user is not root, and the user ID is equal to the group ID, and the username is the same as primary group name, the umask group bits are set to be the same as owner bits (examples: 022 -> 002, 077 -> 007).
- Sets the calling process's file mode creation mask (umask) to mask & 0777. The value is interpreted as Octal.
MODULE TYPES PROVIDED
