-.SH DESCRIPTION
-.B pam_setcred
-
-This function is used to establish, maintain and delete the
-credentials of a user. It should be called after a user has been
-authenticated and before a session is opened for the user (with
-.BR pam_open_session "(3))."
-
-It should be noted that credentials come in many forms. Examples
-include: group memberships; ticket-files; and Linux-PAM environment
-variables. For this reason, it is important that the basic identity
-of the user is established, by the application, prior to a call to
-this function. For example, the default
-.BR Linux-PAM
-environment variables should be set and also
-.BR initgroups "(2) "
-(or equivalent) should have been performed.
-
-.SH "VALID FLAGS"
-.TP
-.BR PAM_ESTABLISH_CRED
-initialize the credentials for the user.
-
-.TP
-.BR PAM_DELETE_CRED

-
-.TP
-.BR PAM_REINITIALIZE_CRED

-
-.TP
-.BR PAM_REFRESH_CRED
-extend the lifetime of the existing credentials.
-
-.SH "RETURN VALUE"
-
-On success
-.BR PAM_SUCCESS
-is returned, all other return values should be treated as errors.
-
-.SH ERRORS
