What is pam_ibmdb2

pam_ibmdb2 is a PAM module for IBM DB2 that allows people to login to PAM aware applications by authenticating to an IBM DB2 database.


  • user authentication:
    • md5
      • normal md5 hash (32 chars as in php)
      • seeded md5 value (as generated with Apache's htpasswd utility or as in /etc/shadow)
    • crypt
    • plain text
  • if passwords are encrypted, the validation process checks the kind of encryption method

If you do have some ideas what features the module should have, please let me know via the Feature Request Tracker.

Requirements: IBM DB2

next release

Planned release date: since my work has been pretty stressy over the last months the planned release date had to be postponed to middle of August 2005
