Managing RBAC (Task Map)

The following task map points to procedures for customizing role-based access control (RBAC) after RBAC has been initially implemented.

For Instructions
Change the role password
An authorized user or role changes the password of another role.
Modify the properties of a role
Modifies the capabilities (privileges, privileged commands, profiles, or authorizations) of a role.
Create or change rights profiles
Creates a rights profile. Or modifies the authorizations, privileged commands, or supplementary rights profiles in a rights profile.
Change a user's administrative capabilities
Adds a role, a rights profile, an authorization, or privileges to an ordinary user.
Secure legacy applications
Turns on the set ID permissions for legacy applications. Scripts can contain commands with set IDs. Legacy applications can check for authorizations, if appropriate.

These procedures manage the elements that are used in RBAC. For user management procedures, refer to Chapter 5, Managing User Accounts and Groups (Tasks), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Basic Administration.
