I guess this should be something like:

pam_authz_search (&(objectClass=groupOfURLs)(cn=prod)(member=$dn))

With pam_authz_search you can't currently specify the search base and
the default search base is used. So you have to make your filter
specific enough to only match the object you want.

The member=$dn would ensure that only members for the logged-in user
should be matched.

You could combine this to allow users that have a host attribute access
regardless of the group they are in:


It's a bit long and I hope I got the parenthesis right.
