This question appears in various forums time and time again though I've yet to
discover a solution for it under linux. It *must* be a common issue....
The need exists to map users who are successfully authenticated via
pam_radius_auth and who do not have a local account to a default 'token
user'. FreeBSD's radius/pam module has a simple and obvious 'template_user'
directive that suits this precise purpose well. Linux pam_radius_auth lacks
Deploying centralized authentication only to require that all other user info
be manually configured on each and every device anyway doesn't make any
sense. Nor should it involve a full-blown and often unwieldy NIS (or similar)
infrastructure to function. Surely I'm overlooking something.
