Write a PAM module that implements pam_sm_acct_mgmt.
There are various already existing PAM modules available if you do a
One such page is: http://www.comsmiths.com.au/pam/index.html
Note that Sun Microsystems does not officially endorse the modules listed
on the above URL.
If this is important functionality for you then please pass this to
your Sun Account Manager if you have one so that the functionality
can be considered for some future release of Solaris.
If you need them to be logged out at the end of that time period then
the issue becomes more complex since you need a daemon process that would
kill off their login sessions.
