The policy.conf file provides a way of granting
specific rights profiles, specific authorizations, and specific privileges
to all users. The relevant entries in the file consist of key=value pairs:
Refers to one or more authorizations.
PROFS_GRANTED=rights profiles –
Refers to one or more rights profiles.
CONSOLE_USER=Console User– Refers to the Console User rights
profile. This profile is delivered with a convenient set of authorizations
for the console user. You can customize this profile.
PRIV_DEFAULT=privileges – Refers to one or more privileges.
PRIV_LIMIT=privileges – Refers
to all privileges.
The following example shows some typical values from a policy.conf database:
# grep AUTHS /etc/security/policy
# grep PROFS /etc/security/policy
PROFS_GRANTED=Basic Solaris User
# grep PRIV /etc/security/policy
