Sandbox: A Free GUI for Managing Mac OS X ACLs

Published February 4th, 2007
Sandbox: batteries not included Sandbox Freeware ACL GUIOriginally downloaded February 4, 2007. As the developer notes, managing access control lists (ACLs), which were introduced for enhancing secure computing in Tiger, is not for the faint of heart. If you're a sysadmin working on Mac OS X, you probably already have Mac OS X server running, in which case you have the Apple-supplied ACL GUI manager. But if not, or if you're just curious to learn more about ACLs, Sandbox proposes to help out. It comes with what looks like good documentation, as well as a link to Apple's more in-depth description of ACLs in Tiger.

Version as tested: 2.11.
