Multi User System Security
MultiUser allows you to create a *IX-like environment where several users live
together in harmony, unable to delete each others files, unable to read those
private love-letters of other users. And this even if several users are
working on the machine at the same time (on a terminal hooked up to the serial
People without a valid login ID and password won't be able to access files you
have made private with MultiUser. If you make all files private (not readable
for others), the only useful thing they could do, is boot from a floppy.
MultiUser Release 1.8 is distributed in 3 archives:
There is no new distribution of the external utilities; use the archive
from the 1.7 release:
- MultiUser18bin.lha: Basic MultiUser package (you really need this!)
- MultiUser18api.lha: Include files, autodoc, etc...
- MultiUser18src.lha: Source for the library and support commands
For more information about MultiUser (disclaimer, distributability, usage,
etc...), read the documentation file `MultiUser.doc' in the archive
- MultiUser17_ext.lha: External utilities.
For your convenience, this archive has been renamed to `MultiUser18ext.lha'.
How To Get It...
Via anonymous FTP from any Aminet site (e.g. wuarchive.wustl.edu, ftp.luth.se),
in the /pub/aminet/util/misc directory.
Release 1.8 was compiled by Norbert Püschel (firstname.lastname@example.org) with
permission from Geert Uytterhoeven.
The future of MultiUser
Due to my limited time I stopped the MultiUser project in January 1995. This
was a very hard decision...
Fortunately Pavel Troller (email@example.com) and Martin Mares (firstname.lastname@example.org) took over the project (thank you very much!).
And Norbert Püschel (email@example.com) is still working on it also. Thus, wait and see...
- [End 1996]
- MultiUser seems to be completely dead by now. But please consider
Linux/m68k if you want
more security on your Amiga!
- The remainings of MultiUser are now under the GNU General Public
- The saga continues...
