Locking

 

A technique used to prevent unauthorised changes to file contents, also known as 'Read Only'. Typically a document - for example a disciplinary letter to a member of staff, - will be created and then 'locked' with a password. Other authorised users will be able to view the contents and even make copies, but only the originator of the document has the password needed to gain access to change the content.
