名称

pwck - verify the integrity of password files

大纲

pwck [选项] [PASSWORDFILE [ SHADOWFILE ]]

描述

The pwck command verifies the integrity of the users and authentication information. It checks that all entries in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow have the proper format and contain valid data. The user is prompted to delete entries that are improperly formatted or which have other uncorrectable errors.

检查的项目有:

•正确的字段数

•一个唯一且有效的用户名

•一个有效的用户和组标识符

•有效的主组

•有效的主目录

•有效的登录 shell

Checks for shadowed password information are enabled when the second file parameter SHADOWFILE is specified or when /etc/shadow exists on the system.

这些检查是:

•每个密码项都有对应的影子相,反之亦然。

•密码在影子化了的文件中指定

•影子项有正确的字段数。

•影子项在影子文件中是唯一的

•最后一次的密码更改时间不是被设成了一个将来的时间。

The checks for correct number of fields and unique user name are fatal. If the entry has the wrong number of fields, the user will be prompted to delete the entire line. If the user does not answer affirmatively, all further checks are bypassed. An entry with a duplicated user name is prompted for deletion, but the remaining checks will still be made. All other errors are warnings and the user is encouraged to run the usermod command to correct the error.

The commands which operate on the /etc/passwd file are not able to alter corrupted or duplicated entries. pwck should be used in those circumstances to remove the offending entry.
