V NetWare Security
Beginning with NetWare 4, the security model for Novell is Novell Directory Services (NDS). NDS permits logins from any point in its hierarchical tree. One of the strong points of NDS is the global nature, granting control from a centralized point.
The ACL (Access Control List) provides authentication information to determine the level of user control that the user has access to. An administrator can control all objects at the server level. NetWare calls user permissions trustee rights, which can be assigned at the folder (directory) and file level by groups a users in a very flexible manner.
While no two NDS (Netware Directory Services) trees will look identical, they all have common characteristics. A standard structure for applications, groups, mappings, printers, and servers all have common tree with a common look and feel for the controls, all in a single view. Partitions and replication can be created for ease in synchronization. A single point of logon provides authorized administrators access to both Netware 5.x, 4,x and tree based 3.x servers.
