2.4.7.2. Application Access

The console user also has access to certain programs configured for use in the /etc/security/console.apps/ directory.
This directory contains configuration files which enable the console user to run certain applications in /sbin and /usr/sbin.
These configuration files have the same name as the applications that they set up.
One notable group of applications that the console user has access to are three programs that shut down or reboot the system:
  • /sbin/halt
  • /sbin/reboot
  • /sbin/poweroff
Because these are PAM-aware applications, they call the pam_console.so module as a requirement for use.
