The /etc/security/environ file is an ASCII file that contains stanzas with the environment attributes for users. Each stanza is identified by a user name and contains attributes in the Attribute=Value form with a comma separating the attributes. Each line is ended by a new-line character, and each stanza is ended
by an additional new-line character. If environment attributes are not defined, the system uses default values. The mkuser command creates a user stanza in this file. The initialization of the attributes depends upon their values in the
The chuser command can change these attributes, and the lsuser command can display them. The rmuser command removes the entire record for a user.
A basic /etc/security/environ file is shown in the following example, which has no environment attributes defined. Therefore, the system is using default values.
# pg /etc/security/environ
