See authprogs/README.readers.conf if you're looking for an overview of the
authentication system.  ckpasswd.c is the best authenticator to take a
look at if you're writing new code.  On most systems with NIS, ckpasswd
should actually work without any modification; see the man page for that
program and the man page for readers.conf.
