I'm using a YubiKey for ssh 2 factor authentication. I've directed the flow to pam.d/ssh and added the provided pam_yubico.so module.

I would like to override the default prompt which displays:

YubiKey for user

This page, indicates that pam_yubico has no module parameters that support overriding the default message prompt.

This github project seems to have written a wrapper that supports a discrete_prompt parameter flag.

I would like to stick to the manufacturer's PAM module for security reasons.

Is there anyway to override that message or is the only way to modify the source and recompile the PAM library?
