Apparently there is no "PAM daemon", it's just supposed to work. I'm at a loss

Hi dag69
Not being familiar with PAM I had to do some digging.

Guess again:

The first thing to understand is that PAM is NOT something like tcpd (tcp wrappers) or xinetd that encloses and restricts access to some service. An application needs to be "PAM aware"; it needs to have been written and compiled specifically to use PAM. There are tremendous advantages in doing so, and most applications with any interest in security will be PAM aware.

I ended up running "sudo -E program", with the -E flag retaining all the tc user environment variables while being able to run the program with root permissions. This is desirable behavior for me and I'm gonna call it solved
