Pam authentication question

Hi list,

I'm trying to setup PAM authentication for nginx and I'm wondering if it 
is possible to authenticate using

Here is the content of my /etc/pam.d/nginx file:
@include common-auth
@include common-account

In auth.log, I see some errors:
Jul 7 12:39:14 eucalyptus unix_chkpwd[1312]: check pass; user unknown
Jul 7 12:39:14 eucalyptus unix_chkpwd[1312]: password check failed for 
user (tonio)
Jul 7 12:39:14 eucalyptus ker process: pam_unix(nginx:auth): 
authentication failure; logname= uid=33 euid=33 tty= ruser= rhost= 

But this is not helping a lot.

Maybe some of you have an answer for me? :-)
