5.1 Authentication modules

The problem of having different authentication mechanisms has been recognised by several vendors, and several solutions have appeared. In most cases these solutions involve some kind of shared modules that are loaded at run-time. Modules for some of these systems can be found in lib/auth. Presently there are modules for Digital's SIA, and IRIX' login and xdm (in lib/auth/afskauthlib).
