Re: c code to change current user password using PAM API

Hi Ashish,

Yes you can definitely achieve this using the pAM APIS.
You can use pam_start() and pam_authenticate() for instance.
Please refer to this link. Let me know if this is of any help.

c code to change current user password using PAM API

I want to write c code to change current user password.
The code first check for current password & then set new password.
The code must use PAM API just like passwd utility.
Also code must work without user intervention ie only by argument current password & new password are given.
So, can any one know that already this work is done  or  i can use  passwd  utility in my c code using system command.
