       gshadow - skuggad gruppfil


       /etc/gshadow contains the shadowed information for group accounts.

       Denna fil får inte vara läsbar av vanliga användare om lösenordssäkerheten ska

       Each line of this file contains the following colon-separated fields:

           It must be a valid group name, which exist on the system.

       krypterat lösenord
           Referera till crypt(3) för detaljer om hur denna sträng tolkas.

           If the password field contains some string that is not a valid result of crypt(3), for
           instance ! or *, users will not be able to use a unix password to access the group
           (but group members do not need the password).

           The password is used when a user who is not a member of the group wants to gain the
           permissions of this group (see newgrp(1)).

           This field may be empty, in which case only the group members can gain the group

           A password field which starts with an exclamation mark means that the password is
           locked. The remaining characters on the line represent the password field before the
           password was locked.

           This password supersedes any password specified in /etc/group.

           It must be a comma-separated list of user names.

           Administrators can change the password or the members of the group.

           Administrators also have the same permissions as the members (see below).

           It must be a comma-separated list of user names.

           Members can access the group without being prompted for a password.

           You should use the same list of users as in /etc/group.
