How security styles affect data access

Each volume and qtree on the storage system has a security style. The security style determines what type of permissions are used for data on volumes when authorizing users. You must understand what the different security styles are, when and where they are set, how they impact permissions, how they differ between volume types, and more.

For more information about security styles, see the Data ONTAP File Access and Protocols Management Guide for 7-Mode.
