Umask(User Mask

Symbolic mask:

Umask -S

  • displays the existing default value for new files

  • For example the result of the last command may be like:

    u=rwx,g=rwx,o=rx

  • This means creating new files with the mode:

    -rw-rw-r--

    And directories with the mode:

    Drwxrwxr- x

Umask(User Mask

  • 022 (masking out the write permission for the group and others), which ensures that new files are only writable for the owner (i.e. the user who created them).

  • Another common value is 002, which leaves the write permission for the file's group enabled. This can be used for files in shared workspaces, where several users work with the same files
