File and Directory Permissions
Based on an assignment by Michael Anderson.
Security for UNIX systems is primarily achieved through the use of permissions on files and directories. It is important to thoroughly understand the effect of each permission, as it applies to both files and directories.
An objective of this lab is to experiment with permissions to gain an understanding of how they work. To complete this lab you will need to fill out the Part I chart and paragraph, below, and answer the Part II questions, below.
Part I - Directory Permissions
At the end of the lab, you should be able to write a paragraph (3-4 sentences) which succinctly, yet accurately describes the effect of directory permissions on the operation of various Unix commands on items within the directory. What are the overall conditions required to create, read, and delete items in/from a directory?
Remember to write that short, descriptive paragraph!
Part II - Permissions of Files and Directories
