NFS version 4 (specified in RFC 3530) Access Control Lists (ACLs) provide more fine grained control than previous file permission models, but before the full benefit of the model can be exploited, some changes and clarifications must be made. This document will describe the details that implementors should consider in order to allow implementations to function and interoperate better.
