           Summary: (Re)Add PAM PasswordAuthentication support
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: -current
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: PAM support
        AssignedTo: openssh-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: dtucker at zip.com.au

The current PAM code requires clients to authenticate via challenge-response to
actually authenticate via PAM.  sshd should support PasswordAuthentication via
PAM as best it can (which requires a "blind" conversation function, which is not
ideal but is the best that can be done within the limits of PAM and SSH's
password authentication).

This would also work with Kerberos/AFS PAM modules (bug #688).
