    Hello and Welcome!

    What exactly do you mean?
    Security on Linux is typically handled by permissions.

    Lol, to be honest I was wondering the same thing but I was asked "Where are the log-in security parameters stored" by my boss and I thought that perhaps it was over my head.

    I should have been specific with the version... I was referring to Red Hat Enterprise Server.

    Thanks for any help!

    I replied the /etc folder but he said that was incorrect. So I am guessing that the /usr/sbin directory is what he wants as an answer.

    It was a really vague question but if you have any other input that could help me out I would really appreciate it.

    I might not be the best one to reply to this... I never had any tolerance for questions like that from a supervisor.
    Is he familiar with the system? If he is, get some specifics of what he might be wanting from you.

    Honestly... ask him what he means. Otherwise, it's all guesswork.
