I do not have much experience with PAM, but in conversations with
others relating to our Solaris servers (versions 2.6 thru 9), I'm under
the impression that we are not using it.
In a recent audit of some of our files, we were cited with having some
servers "less secure" than others simply by virtue of the entries
within /etc/pam.conf. They do seem to differ, especially when
comparing the 2.6 servers with more current versions (7 thru 9).
My questions become: "IF we are not using PAM, I would presume that we
do not have a need to access the /etc/pam.conf file. That being said,
do we even need it (i.e. can it be removed without serious
ramifications)? How would one go about determining IF it is "actually"
