policy.conf File

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:

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
