pam_dotfile is a PAM module which allows users to have more than one password for a single account, each for a different service. This is desirable because many users have objections to using the same password for (as an example) an IMAP4 mailbox and SSH access.
pam_imap is based on the pam_mysql module. It has been modified to use the c-client (IMAP2000) to authenticate remotely using the imap protocol.
pam_ldap provides the means for Solaris and Linux workstations to authenticate against LDAP directories, and to change their passwords in the directory.
pam_mount is a Pluggable Authentication Module that can mount volumes for a user session.
PAM_pkcs#11 is a Linux-PAM login module that allows a X.509 certificate based user login. The certificate and its dedicated private key are thereby accessed by means of an appropriate PKCS #11 module. For the verification of the users' certificates, locally stored CA certificates as well as either online or locally accessible CRLs are used. A very flexible, stackable, and configurable Certificate-To-Login mapping scheme is provided to deduce/verify the username to log in.
a PAM module for password strength checking. It makes additional checks upon password changes, but it doesn't make the change itself. It only provides functionality for one PAM management group: password changing
the PAM RADIUS authentication module. It allows any PAM-capable machine to become a RADIUS client for authentication and accounting requests
pam_require is a simple Plugable Authentication Module (PAM) for Linux (and maybe other systems which use PAM). It is an account module that allows you to require a special group or user to access a service.
pam_shield is a PAM module that uses iptables to lock out script kiddies that probe your computer for open logins or easy guessable passwords. pam_shield is meant as an aid to protect public computers on the Internet.
a Pluggable Authentication Module for FreeBSD that authenticates users against an SMB server (like Samba) and automatically mounts their home shares
pam_smbmount for linux
Pam_smbmount for linux is a pam module that can be used to mount (and unmount) smb/cifs shares when user is logging in (or logging off). Pam_smbmount has lots of advantages compared with similar pam modules that mount/unmount volumes.
a PAM module that spawns a ssh-agent and adds identities using the password supplied at login
pam_tacplus is a PAM module that supports the following functions: authentication, authorization (account management) & accounting (session management).
pam_tally is a pretty simple module to count logins, optionally refusing login after a given number of failures.
a PAM module that enables authentication using an USB-Storage device (such as an USB Pen) through DSA private/public keys
USBauth is a module for PAM allowing end-users to locally authenticate via USB storage devices. USBAuth currently supports user-dependent authentication via password-hashing as well as one-time-password mechanisms, which make the verification process via USB-dongles much more secure. In addition, USBAuth comes with USB device serial checking support, so attackers won't be able to grab and copy your device easily (if this is the case, the device will be rejected).
a client module for pcmcia-cs (Linux), allowing the use of Measurement Computingīs PC-DIO-CARD48 under Linux
PCI Helper to Observe Boards: a kernel module that can be used to access registers in arbitrary PCI devices from user space. The device also offers a very simplified mechanism to define interrupt handlers
Poldi is a PAM module that implements authentication through the OpenPGP smart card. It uses the smart card daemon from the GnuPG project for smart card access.
RapidDisk is a Linux RAM disk kernel module like the brd and zram modules, but with a different feature-set.
rshaper is a module for network shaping while receiving. Linux-2.0, 2.2, and 2.4.
rsuid LSM is a Linux LSM kernel module that allows a user with a specific UID to switch to all users within certain ranges.
Saint Jude LKM
Saint Jude LKM is a Linux kernel module that implements the Saint Jude model for improper privilege transitions. This will permit the discovery of local, and ultimately, remote root exploits during the exploit itself.
sch_ooo is a queueing discipline that produces out-of-order packets.
SDPL is a simple disk partition layer which is highly configurable and tunable. It can be adapted to a wide range of uses, from embedded devices to 64-bit servers.
SHell FileSystem Linux kernel module: a simple and easy to use Linux kernel (2.4) module which allows you to mount remote filesystems using plain shell (ssh/rsh) connection. It supports some nice features like number of different caches for access speedup, target system optimisations, etc
sptrace is a LKM designed to give administrators more control over the ptrace() call.
The Plastic File System
The Plastic File System is an LD_PRELOAD module for manipulating what the file system looks like for programs. This allows virtual file systems to exist in user space, without kernel hacks or modules.
translucency linux kernel module
translucency linux kernel module installs tweaked syscall handlers that redirect
each access for files within a given directory to another one while failed reads (nonexistent overlay files) will cause fallback to the original files thus virtually (logically) merging both directories (possibly being on different medii with different filesystems each).
u24mixer-module is a simple module that provides ALSA mixer controls for the ESI U24 USB sound card.
unionfs-fuse is an effort to create a userland unionfs implementation that is probably slower but way more flexible than the current kernel-only based unionfs solution.
usbmgr loads kernel modules according to configuration info in usbmgr.conf when USB devices connect into USB HUB.
an analog to the pcimodules program. It prints
the list of kernel modules that are relevant to a particular USB device specified
Xtables-addons is a package that mostly supersedes the old patch-o-matic repository for the Linux kernel and iptables. Instead of patching the kernel source, extensions are built as modules and thus allow extending kernels without recompilation.
Yin Yang detects file opening and passes it to a daemon for action such as logging file transactions, anti-virus checking, and other file activities. Ideal for real-time on-access file scanning.
