Issue/Introduction

We have HFSSEC(ON) and it is my understanding UNIX permissions are ignored if TSS has HFSSEC(ON). Is my understanding correct?

Environment

Release:
Component: TSSMVS

Resolution

Yes, with HFSSEC(ON), CA Top Secret controls the access to HFS directories and file and UNIX permissions are ignored.

Please see the doc that documents HFSSEC(ON) at:
