console.perms(5) System Administrator's Manual console.perms(5)
console.perms - permissions control file for users at the system console
/etc/security/console.perms determines the permissions that will be given to priviledged
users of the console at login time, and the permissions to which to revert when the users
log out. It is read by the pam_console module.
The format is:
<class>=space-separated list of words
login-regexp|<login-class> perm dev-glob|<dev-class> \
The revert-mode, revert-owner, and revert-group fields are optional, and default to 0600,
root, and root, respectively.
The words in a class definition are evaluated as globs if they refer to files, but as reg-
ular expressions if they apply to a console definition. Do not mix them.
Any line can be broken and continued on the next line by using a \ character as the last
character on the line.
The login-class class and the login-regexp word are evaluated as regular expressions. The
dev-class and the dev-glob word are evaluated as shell-style globs. If a name given cor-
responds to a directory, and if it is a mount point listed in /etc/fstab, the device node
associated with the filesystem mounted at that point will be substituted in its place.
Classes are denoted by being contained in < angle bracket > characters; a lack of < angle
brackets > indicates that the string is to be taken literally as a login-regexp or a dev-
glob, depending on its input position.
