Description:
Pam_helper is a small utility which allows non-PAM, or non-setuid applications to make use of PAM's authentication services. It was mainly created to allow gnome-screensaver to make use of PAM, but any application could use it. It accepts two arguments, the PAM service name, and a username. It reads the user's password from stdin.
