geoip.conf - config file for the PAM module pam_geoip


The configuration file (by default /etc/security/geoip.conf) contains lines of four items: domain, service, action and location. For a description of these, see below. When the service specific configuration file (/etc/security/geoip.SERVICE.conf) is used, the service column must not be present. If this file is present, the default file is not used, even if present on the command line as "system_file=/file/name". If you need to match on city names containing non ascii(7) characters (like "DE, Köln" or "SE, Växjö"), you can set the character set to use in the module's arguments: "iso-8859-1" or "UTF-8" (the default). Any (sub-)item except for action or the distance matching can use a single asterisk ("*") to match any value. domain A user name, group name (prefixed by "@") or "*" for any user / group service A list of services (or "*") separated by "," (NO spaces allowed) action "allow", "deny" or "ignore". This is what will be returned to PAM if the location matches: allow PAM_ALLOW deny PAM_PERM_DENIED ignore PAM_IGNORE location GeoIP location, separated by ";". This can be: · a country code (uppercased, two characters), "*" or "UNKNOWN" · a country code like above and "," and a city name (or "*"). When using a GeoIP country database, this part must be "*", i.e. the full entry looks like "DE, *". · a distance from a given point, e.g. 50.0 { 51.513888, 7.465277 } This is not available when using a GeoIP country database. The location part can use spaces, but note: city names must be given as in the GeoIP database, i.e. "Mountain View", NOT "Moutain  View" or "MountainView". The distance is measured in kilometers. In the above example we match a circle of 100 km diameter around Dortmund, Germany (51° 30′ 50″ north, 7° 27′ 50″ east (51.513888888889, 7.465277777777876)). Coordinates west and south are given as negative values. Values must be given in decimal.
