User Rights Management

User rights in Oracle Solaris are governed by the security principle of least privilege. Organizations can selectively grant administrative rights to users or roles according to the unique needs and requirements of the organization. They can also deny rights to users when required. Rights are implemented as privileges on processes and authorizations on users or SMF methods. Rights profiles provide a convenient way to collect privileges and authorizations into a bundle of related rights.
