Name        : pam_mount
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 2.5
Release     : 1.fc13
URL         : http://pam-mount.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : A PAM module that can mount volumes for a user session
Description :
This module is aimed at environments with central file servers that a
user wishes to mount on login and unmount on logout, such as
(semi-)diskless stations where many users can logon.

The module also supports mounting local filesystems of any kind the
normal mount utility supports, with extra code to make sure certain
volumes are set up properly because often they need more than just a
mount call, such as encrypted volumes. This includes SMB/CIFS, NCP,
davfs2, FUSE, losetup crypto, dm-crypt/cryptsetup and truecrypt.

If you intend to use pam_mount to protect volumes on your computer
using an encrypted filesystem system, please know that there are many
other issues you need to consider in order to protect your data.  For
example, you probably want to disable or encrypt your swap partition.
Don't assume a system is secure without carefully considering
potential threats.

Update Information:

Update to libHX 3.6 fixing a buffer overflow in HX_split():    * http://libhx.gi
pam_mount v2.5 (August 10 2010)  ===============================  Changes:  -
mount.crypt: fix incorrect processing of binary files in keyfile passthrough  -
call mount.crypt by means of mount -t crypt (selinux), same for umount  -
reorder the default path to search in /usr/local first, then /usr, /  - config:
add missing fd0ssh command to restore volumes using ssh  - ofl is now run as a
separate process (selinux policy simplification)    libHX v3.6 (August 16 2010)
===========================  Fixed:  - bitmap: set/clear/test had no effect due
to wrong type selection  - bitmap: avoid left-shift larger than type on 64-bit
- string: fixed buffer overflow in HX_split when too few fields were present in
the input    libHX 3.5 (August 01 2010)  ==========================  Fixed:  -
format2: failure to skip escaped char in "%(echo foo\ bar)" was corrected  -
proc: properly check for HXPROC_STDx--HXPROC_STDx_NULL overlap  - strquote: do
not cause allocation with invalid format numbers  Enhancements:  - format2: add
the %(exec) function  - format2: add the %(shell) function  - format2: security
feature for %(exec) and %(shell)  - format2: add the %(snl) function  - string:
HX_strquote gained HXQUOTE_LDAPFLT (LDAP search filter) support  - string:
HX_strquote gained HXQUOTE_LDAPRDN (LDAP relative DN) support  Changes:  -
format1: removed older formatter in favor of format2  - format2: add check for
empty key  - format2: function-specific delimiters  - format2: do nest-counting
even with normal parentheses  - format2: check for zero-argument function calls
- hashmap: do not needlessy change TID when no reshape was done  - string:
HX_basename (the fast variant) now recognizes the root directory  - string:
HX_basename now returns the trailing component with slashes instead of
everything after the last slash (which may have been nothing)
