pam_require is a simple Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) for Linux (and maybe other systems which use PAM). It is an account module that allows you to require a special user or group to access a service.




auth       required     pam_nologin.so
auth       required     pam_unix.so
auth       required     pam_env.so

account    required     pam_unix.so
account    required     pam_require.so @ssh-users admin

session    required     pam_unix.so
session    optional     pam_lastlog.so
session    optional     pam_motd.so
session    optional     pam_mail.so standard noenv
session    required     pam_limits.so

password   required     pam_unix.so

The above example requires a user to be member of the group ssh-users or to be user admin himself to login via ssh.
