About NIS+ Access Rights

NIS+ access rights determine what operations NIS+ users can perform and what information they have access to. This chapter assumes that you have an adequate understanding of the NIS+ security system in general, and in particular of the role that access rights play in that system (see Chapter 11, NIS+ Security Overview for this information).

For a complete description of NIS+ access-related commands and their syntax and options, see the NIS+ man pages.
