Web Server Security Access Changes

October 11th, 2003

LuxSci has just implemented a more secure and more granular model for managing users’ access to your web server. Now, administrators can, at any time, select each individual user’s access to the web server from the following possibilities:

  • No account: The user has no account on the web server at all
  • No access: The user may have an account, but has no way of logging into or accessing it
  • FTP access
  • FTP and SCP (Secure Copy) access
  • FTP, SCP, and SSH (Secure Shell) access with the tcsh shell
  • FTP, SCP, and SSH (Secure Shell) access with the bash shell

Note that SCP access is now available independently of SSH access, and SSH access is granted only in special cases.
