       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 an 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 a 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.
