The umask utility sets the file permission bits of user-created files. If the default umask value, 022, is not restrictive enough, set a more restrictive mask by using this procedure.
Before You Begin
You must become an administrator who is authorized to edit the skeleton files. The root role is assigned these authorizations. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
# ls -1a /etc/skel .bashrc .profile local.cshrc local.login local.profile
