Exercise 1 - Working with Access Control List

CentOS uses permissions on the files and directories. However, the issue is that the permissions apply same for all the users in a system. For example, if you assign the Read permission, then it would apply to all the users. Each user can be assigned different permissions. Setting up access control lists on files and directories allows you to control the access to files and directories strictly.

In this exercise, you will learn to work with Access Control List (ACL).
