Rights Profiles

This section describes some typical rights profiles. Rights profiles are convenient collections of authorizations and other security attributes, commands with security attributes, and supplementary rights profiles. Oracle Solaris provides many rights profiles. If they are not sufficient for your needs, you can modify existing ones and create new ones.

Rights profiles must be assigned in order, from most to least powerful. For more information, see Order of Search for Assigned Security Attributes.

Each rights profile has an associated help file. The help files are in HTML and are customizable. The files reside in the /usr/lib/help/profiles/locale/C directory.

Viewing the Contents of Rights Profiles

You have three views into the contents of rights profiles.

For more information, see the getent(1M) and profiles(1) man pages.
