Using File Access Control Lists (ACLs) on RHEL 8

While the traditional method (ugo/rwx) of permissions is generally useful for providing access to files and directories, sometimes we need a little more. Access Control Lists (ACLs) give us finer-grained control of Linux filesystem permissions. In this hands-on lab, we will create and use file access control lists on RHEL 8. *This course is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat.*
