Security for Captive Users?

» close window

The Question is:

Hi Wizard,
I want to create a user with restricted permissions. Requirement is to create a
with read/write access to a particular directory
only. How can create such a user?

The Answer is :

  Please visit the OpenVMS System Security Manual as a start.
  There are two steps involved here, the first involves creating a username
  with very limited access, and the second and more important entails ACLs
  that deny access to the various top-level objects (disks, queues, etc)
  outside those that the user requires access to.
  For truely restricted users, see the captive and restricted options, and
  then using a dedicated command procedure as the user's login.
