Re: Access Control List

But default file security is User, Group and Other. By using ACLs you can have more combinations other than these three.
See getacl(1) and setacl(1) examples.

Re: Access Control List

Hi
Besides the normal file permission(rwx) ACL provides easy method for accessing the file for users.
#setacl -m user:user1:r-- file1

The above command sets the permission for file1 to user1 as read only.(r--)
The advantage compared to chmod is here we can specify individual user.
See man getacl
man setacl
