DB2 and authentication using PAM - IBM DB2

As I read in archives of this news group, DB2 UDB doesn't currently support PAM for authentication. Does anybody know if it is planned to support it ? If yes, when ? Many thanks regards André...

    As I read in archives of this news group, DB2 UDB doesn't currently support
    PAM for authentication.

    Does anybody know if it is planned to support it ? If yes, when ?

    PAM : Pluggable Authentication Module
    We currently use pam_smb ( a pam module for smb ) to authenticate linux
    users against the Windows domain.
    We are soon migrating from pam_smb to pam_kerberos to authenticate users
    against active directory.

    Unfortunually, the authentication of such a user defined on Linux platform
    failed because DB2 doesn't support pam !

    DB2 will use whatever authentication your operating system is using. If
    you use PAM for Linux authentication, then DB2 will honour it from the O/S.
