SECURE_PATH(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		   SECURE_PATH(3)

NAME
     secure_path -- determine if a file appears to be ``secure''

LIBRARY
     System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <util.h>

     int
     secure_path(const char *path);

DESCRIPTION
     The secure_path() function takes a path name and returns zero if the referenced file is
     ``secure'', non-zero if not.  Any ``insecurity'', other than failure to access the refer-
     enced file, will be logged to the system log.

     To be ``secure'', the referenced file must exist, be a regular file (and not a directory),
     owned by the super-user, and writable only by the super-user.

SEE ALSO
     openlog(3)

HISTORY
     The secure_path() function is based on the BSD/OS implementation of same, and appeared in
     NetBSD 1.5 by kind permission.
