  • 19. Mac OS X Permissions
    • The Basics
      • Permissions are the foundation of a multi-user file system like Mac OS X and UNIX
      • Users and groups identify you & files you own
      • Permissions mark your turf
        • The files you can see and change
        • The programs you can run
      • Permissions are applied individually to each file and define who can read, write, and execute it.
  • 20. Mac OS X Permissions
    • Users and Groups
      • A user is someone with an account on MacOS X
        • Users have name, password, and are able to login
        • Users have unique identity on machine
        • Users have home directory for personal files
        • Password is proof of identity
      • A group is organizational unit to which any number of users may belong.
        • Each user must belong to a least one group
        • MacOS X specifies a primary group automatically
        • Groups associate a group of users to a group of files
  • 21. Mac OS X Permissions
    • Every file in the file system has a set of permissions that define who can access the file, and how. Access is defined for three classes of user:
      • the user owner
      • the group owner
      • everybody else - termed others .
    • And each user is allowed, or disallowed from:
      • reading the file
      • writing to the file (or changing it in any way)
      • executing the file (applicable to applications / programs).
  • 22. Mac OS X Permissions
    • Anatomy of Permission (using Terminal program)
      • Character / text based tool for looking at file system
      • Used before nice graphical interfaces existed in UNIX
  • 23. Mac OS X Permissions
    • Anatomy of Permission (using Terminal program)
      • d at left end represents that the file is a directory / folder
      • - at left end represents that file is just that - a file
      • First set of rwx marks are permission for owner
      • Second set of rwx marks are permissions for group
      • Third set of rwx marks are permissions for others
      • If an r,w,or x are missing, the permission is not granted
  • 24. Permissions
    • Changing Permissions on Folders
      • Reason: tighter or looser security
      • Quick Summary of Typical Settings
        • Full access by everybody : wide open access
        • Give, but don’t take : other users can put things in the folder, but can not actually open the folder
        • Look, but don’t touch : Users can open and copy files from inside folder, but they can not put anything in or save any changes they make to items in folder
  • 25. Permissions
    • Changing Permissions Graphically
      • Select folder, and press Command - I
      • Click triangle for Ownership & Permissions
    • The lock prevents accidentally change of owner and group, while still allowing access to be changed.
