> Currently plain login using PAM as its user database.  However, in a 
> containerized or server environment the passwd file is generally kept static, 
> so some other mechanism for managing users is preferred.  Also, pam does not 
> by default come with an easy to way to check passwords other than via the 
> passwd/shadow files.
>  It would be great if there was another authentication method included in 
> drill that was easier to use in a containerized environment.
> Reading the usernames and password from a specific file would probably be the 
> simplest mechanism.
