Chapter 6

Controlling Access to Files (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to protect files in Oracle Solaris. The chapter also describes how to protect the system from files whose permissions could compromise the system.

Note - To protect ZFS files with access control lists (ACLs), see Chapter 8, Using ACLs to Protect Oracle Solaris ZFS Files, in Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration Guide.

The following is a list of the information in this chapter.
