By default rules for access management are taken from config file /etc/security
-/access.conf if you don't specify another file.
+/access.conf if you don't specify another file. Then individual *.conf files
+from the /etc/security/access.d/ directory are read. The files are parsed one
+after another in the order of the system locale. The effect of the individual
+files is the same as if all the files were concatenated together in the order
+of parsing. This means that once a pattern is matched in some file no further
+files are parsed. If a config file is explicitly specified with the accessfile
+option the files in the above directory are not parsed.
If Linux PAM is compiled with audit support the module will report when it
denies access based on origin (host, tty, etc.).
