       devassign - device assignment database file for a trusted system

       The  system  supports a single device assignment database that contains
       entries for local login terminals.

       The format of the terminal control database file is identical to	 other
       trusted	system	authentication database files. For more information on
       the file format, see authcap(4).	 The file consists  of	keyword	 field
       identifiers  and	 values for those fields. The keyword identifiers sup‐
       ported and their use include:

       This field specifies a comma separated list of aliases  that  refer  to
       the same
		      device  defined  by  the entry. Use of this field avoids
		      the need to replicate device assignment database entries
		      for all device aliases.

       This field specifies the device that is described by the entry.
		      Device types supported include:

			   The	device	is  assigned as a local login terminal

       This field, if specified, contains a comma separated list of user names
		      are  permitted  to  use  the  device  for	 login	or the
		      import/export of data.  If the list is not present,  all
		      users  are  permitted  to use the device. If the list is
		      present, it is searched for a match by the login program
		      to determine if the user is permitted to use the device.

       The following is an example of a device assignment database entry for a
       terminal device assigned as a login device:

       Remote terminals (ptys) should  not  be	added  to  the	or  databases.
       Device name formats treated as ptys by login are:

	      where	  x   is   a
			  and y is a
			  hex number
	      where	  x   is   a
			  and y is a
			  hex number
