       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> \
	       revert-mode revert-owner[.revert-group]

       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.
