Using Role-Based Access Control (Tasks)

This chapter covers tasks for distributing the capabilities of superuser by using discrete roles. The mechanisms that roles can use include rights profiles, authorizations, and privileges. The following is a list of the task maps in this chapter.

For an overview of RBAC, see Role-Based Access Control (Overview). For reference information, see Chapter 10, Security Attributes in Oracle Solaris (Reference). To use privileges, see Using Privileges (Tasks).
