    This is great. I didn’t know about pam_exec either.

    The switch to a UDP packet for notification was a good call; since this is just an alerting mechanism, losing a login notification isn’t the end of the world.

      I like the idea in general, but this part :|

      That UDP datagram could possibly get lost (tough luck), but it’s not likely to in our LAN

      Yes, of course, if I’m in a data center that might work (so yes, for work stuff) but if I’d like to do that with my (small) private fleet of servers all around different DCs, I think MQTT isn’t the best solution, I could live with UDP per se.
