What You've Learned

  • Authentication gets a user into the server. Authorization determines what the user can do after getting in.

  • User accounts for Mac OS X Server are created in Workgroup Manager. You can configure two types of accounts with Workgroup Manager: user and administrator. An administrator account is the same as a user account except it has the authority to administer the server.

  • Group accounts enable administrators to quickly assign a set of permissions to multiple users. You create and manage group accounts in Workgroup Manager. You can add users to groups and group membership to user accounts.

  • You also use Workgroup Manager to create share points and to assign permissions to the share points.

  • Mac OS X Server v10.4 added support for access control lists (ACLs), which provide a higher granularity for setting permissions. These ACLs are compatible with ACLs from the Windows world and work in addition to the standard POSIX (UNIX) permissions found on Mac OS X.
