ACF2 equivalent in Unix or Linux ?

In IBM Mainframe they have something called ACF2 rule which is essentially used to control the dataset access. It is kind of a list-based access control for mainframe datasets. [Mainframe datasets are equivalent to Unix files]

Is there anything equivalent to ACF2 available in Unix ?

# 2  
File ownership and the protection (permissions) mask for the file. There are also ACL's - access control lists.

This is not a topic for this format...

Start with this:
UNIX File Permissions Tutorial

Unless you have SOX or Government requirements for security, this works pretty well.

You may also want to google for 'unix hardening'. Depending on your platform you may also want to investigate either trusted systems or selinux.
