NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       securettys - Secure terminal database file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Security Note The terminal database file used on a trusted
       system is /etc/auth/system/ttys and is documented  in  the

       The  /etc/securettys file specifies the tty lines that are
       considered secure and permit logins as root.

       Each line in the file contains the pathname of the special
       file  for  a terminal.  A number sign (#) character can be
       used for comments. The following example  is  typical  and
       allows  root  to  log in from the console, from the X-display,

       If this file does not exist, root can log in only from the

       To allow root to log in from any pseudoterminal,  add  the
       keyword  ptys to this file. (This keyword does not require
       the /dev prefix.)
