Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video Access control lists, part of CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) Cert Prep: 4 Identity and Access Management.
- [Instructor] In a discretionary access control system,…resource owners have the ability…to set and modify permissions…for other users of the system.…File owners manage resource permissions…by the creation of access control lists.…An access control list is simply a table…containing usernames and the permissions…granted to each user of a resource.…For example, I might own a file on a computer…governed by a discretionary access control system…and decide that I want other users to access my file.…
I might grant one user the ability to edit the file…and a large group the ability to read the file.…Each one of these decisions would require an entry…in an access control list.…The NTFS file system used by Windows…implements access control lists…and allows users to assign a variety of permissions.…Full control is just what the name implies.…The user can perform any action on the file or folder.…Read permission allows the user…to view the contents of the file.…
Read and execute permission goes beyond the read permission…
