secure_path -- determine if a file appears to be ``secure''
System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)
#include <util.h> int secure_path(const char *path);
The secure_path() function takes a path name and returns zero if the ref- erenced file is ``secure'', non-zero if not. Any ``insecurity'', other than failure to access the referenced file, will be logged to the system log. To be ``secure'', the referenced file must exist, be a regular file (and not a directory), owned by the super-user, and writable only by the super-user.
The secure_path function is based on the BSD/OS implementation of same, and appeared in NetBSD 1.5 by kind permission. NetBSD 5.1 July 16, 1996 NetBSD 5.1
