+pam_loginuid — Record user's login uid to the process attribute
+The pam_loginuid module sets the loginuid process attribute for the process
+that was authenticated. This is necessary for applications to be correctly
+audited. This PAM module should only be used for entry point applications like:
+login, sshd, gdm, vsftpd, crond and atd. There are probably other entry point
+applications besides these. You should not use it for applications like sudo or
+su as that defeats the purpose by changing the loginuid to the account they
+just switched to.
