You should look in:

cat /etc/pam.d/sshd
auth required pam_sepermit.so
auth include password-auth
account required pam_nologin.so
account include password-auth
password include password-auth
# pam_selinux.so close should be the first session rule
session required pam_selinux.so close
session required pam_loginuid.so
# pam_selinux.so open should only be followed by sessions to be executed in
the user context
session required pam_selinux.so open env_params
session optional pam_keyinit.so force revoke
session include password-auth

See the sections on auth_include passwd-auth

be super careful how pam evaluates the modules is very complex.
