Access Control List


The Access Control List - ACL - is a file which a computer's operating system uses to determine the users' individual access rights and privileges to folders / directories and files on a given system. Common privileges allow a user to read a file (or all the files in a folder / directory), to write / update the file or files, and to run (execute) the file (if it is an executable file, or program).
