automatic per-user temporary directories
Many programs use $TMPDIR for storing temporary files. Not
all of them are good at securing the permissions of those
files. libpam-tmpdir sets $TMPDIR and $TMP for PAM sessions
and sets the permissions quite tight. This helps system
security by having an extra layer of security, making such
symlink attacks and other /tmp based attacks harder or
This is pam_tmpdir, a module for (if needed) creating a secure
directory for users' temporary files and setting TMP and TMPDIR.
It is written by Tollef Fog Heen <email@example.com>, and you may use this
under the conditions of the GPL version 2, as noted in
<http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html>. I'd appreciate any bug
reports, patches, suggestions etc.
It is based on pam_env which in turn is based
