Customizing the User Environment for Security

The following task map describes common tasks that you can perform when customizing a system for all users, or when customizing an individual user's account. Many of these tasks are performed before regular users can log in.


Note -  If you are using the account-policy SMF stencil and config/etc_security_policyconf is enabled, then system-wide security policy is determined by the rbac/* SMF properties, not by the variables in the policy.conf file. For examples of viewing and changing account-policy properties, see the procedures in Modifying Rights System-Wide As SMF Properties in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4. See also the account-policy(8S) man page.
