1 499 CHAPTER 40 Permission Program Support for Version 6 Only 499 Allowing SAS/SHARE Client Access to SAS Libraries or Files 499 Permission Program Examples 500 Building the Permission Program 500 Testing the Permission Program 500 Support for Version 6 Only Note: Beginning with Version 7, SAS/SHARE uses the sasperm program that is automatically invoked to allow clients to access SAS libraries or files. However, information about the permission program is included here for Version 6 users. 4 Allowing SAS/SHARE Client Access to SAS Libraries or Files You may write and use the permission program on a SAS/SHARE server that is running on a UNIX host to allow clients to access SAS libraries or files. When presented with a validated userid, the server uses a customer-supplied program named permission to verify the following attributes: 3 user name 3 file or directory path for a SAS library or file 3 file or directory access permissions (read or write). The server invokes this program whenever a client tries to access a SAS library or file. The permission program determines whether or not the requesting user has the specified access to the file or directory. If the user has the appropriate access permissions, the program exits with a zero return code. If the user does not have the appropriate access permissions, the program exits with a non-zero return code. It is recommended that you write attempts, successes, and failures from the executable file to a log. Also, it is recommended that you fail the validation for any step in the process that has a problem. After you write and test the program, move it to the!sasroot /utilities/bin directory where SAS/SHARE expects the program to be located. Note: Methods for implementing file-access security vary across types of UNIX systems. Although many UNIX systems use conventional UNIX file-access permissions for owner, group, and other, some UNIX systems use different methods, such as Access Control Lists (ACLs). 4

2 500 Permission Program Examples 4 Chapter 40 In addition, SAS requires the user to have execute permission in order to access a directory that contains a SAS data library. For systems that use ACLs, ask your system administrator or software vendor for the correct methods to validate access on your system. The sample programs in the!sasroot /utilities/src directory verify a user s access rights by using both conventional UNIX permissions and ACLs. Permission Program Examples The!sasroot /utilities/src directory contains documented examples of the following permission programs: 3 perm.conv.c 3 perm.afsacl.c 3 perm.aixacl.c 3 perm.hpacl.c Each of these programs verifies a user s access rights using both conventional UNIX permissions and ACLs. The filename extension indicates the specific type of UNIX system and the type of permissions for which the programs were designed. For example, perm.aixacl.c specifies a permission program for an AIX UNIX system that uses ACLs. Building the Permission Program In most cases, the working examples can be built with the following commands: cd!sasroot/utilities/src cc -o permission perm.conv.c The cc command typically is the name of the C language compiler, but the command that you use on your system may be different. You do not need to set high optimization or to use an ANSI standard compiler to build the program because it already uses the standard C library functions for most of the work. See the README files for details about building the program on specific UNIX systems. Testing the Permission Program You can perform all testing outside the SAS/SHARE environment because the programs are stand- alone. The simplest way to test the programs is to look at the UNIX status variable in the UNIX shell. For example, using the C shell, you might test the permission program as follows: permission /usr/bass/abc.ssd01 bass R echo $status 0

3 Permission Program 4 Testing the Permission Program 501 A zero exit status means that user bass has read ( R) access to the file abc.ssd01. In the following test, because the exit status is non-zero, user joe does not have write access ( W) to the file abc.ssd01. permission /usr/joe/abc.ssd01 joe W echo $status 1 After you test the program and are satisfied that it works correctly, move the program to the!sasroot /utilities/bin directory where SAS/SHARE expects the program to be located.
