SECURE_PATH(3) BSD Library Functions Manual SECURE_PATH(3)
secure_path -- determine if a file appears to be ``secure''
System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)
secure_path(const char *path);
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.
The secure_path() function is based on the BSD/OS implementation of same, and appeared in
NetBSD 1.5 by kind permission.
