OpenPAM is an implementation of PAM used by FreeBSD, NetBSD, DragonFly BSD and [1 ] Mac OS X (starting with Snow Leopard), and offered as an alternative to [2 ] Linux PAM in certain Linux distributions.
OpenPAM was developed for the FreeBSD Project by Dag-Erling Smørgrav and
NAI Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 ("CBOSS"), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program.
On 1 January 2008, OpenPAM was one of eleven projects selected by
Coverity for promotion to Rung 2 of their DHS-funded Open Source Hardening Project, which tracks bugs found in open-source software by Coverity's Prevent static analysis tool. [3 ] On 23 September 2009, OpenPAM was promoted to Rung 3, along with [4 ] Ruby, Samba and Tor. [5 ]
