pathtrust [!]file... [lockdown]

Test to see if a file is trusted:

pathtrust [-q] -t file... [lockdown]

Test to see if the file is trusted. If you haven't also specified -q, pathtrust reports the results on standard output.
The file to test or mark as trusted.

If you haven't specified the -t option, then if you specify a leading exclamation mark, the given file is designated as trusted. If you don't specify the exclamation mark, the underlying filesystem is designated as trusted.

Prevent any other files or filesystems from being marked as trusted.


The pathtrust utility sends messages to procnto to mark the given files and filesystems as trusted. If you don't mark any files or filesystems as trusted, all are trusted.
