I have a need to allow directory access to a particular user on my file system. I want this user to be unable to access any other directory in my file system (initially anyway. It may need access to some directories later).
For example: I have a directory called
- I want my dedicated user to only be able to access this directory, and nothing else.
- I want all other users to be able to access this directory as normal.
I'm new to Unix and its permissions. I've read a fair bit of background material but I'm a little confused. Is there anyway to revoke permissions to /opt/mydir for a single dedicated user?
A possible flawed method would be to only allow access to /opt/mydir and exclude every other user. This won't work because I want all other users to work as normal; accessing the directory.
I'm working on Solaris 10.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
