OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for device_maps (opensolaris section 4)

device_maps(4)				   File Formats 			   device_maps(4)

NAME
       device_maps - device_maps file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/security/device_maps

DESCRIPTION
       The  device_maps file contains access control information about each physical device. Each
       device is represented by a one line entry of the form:

	 device-name : device-type : device-list :

       where

       device-name

	   This is an arbitrary ASCII string naming the physical device. This field  contains  no
	   embedded white space or non-printable characters.

       device-type

	   This  is  an arbitrary ASCII string naming the generic device type. This field identi-
	   fies and groups together devices of like type. This field contains no  embedded  white
	   space or non-printable characters.

       device-list

	   This  is  a list of the device special files associated with the physical device. This
	   field contains valid device special file path names separated by white space.

       The device_maps file is an ASCII file that resides in the /etc/security directory.

       Lines in device_maps can end with a `\' to continue an entry on the next line.

       Comments may also be included. A `#' makes a comment of all further text  until	the  next
       NEWLINE not immediately preceded by a `\'.

       Leading and trailing blanks are allowed in any of the fields.

       The device_maps file must be created by the system administrator bef\ore device allocation
       is enabled.

       This file is owned by root, with a group of sys, and a mode of 0644.
