I'm working on a application based on FUSE,and I want to support ACL (Access Control List).
Is there any other interface(or ACL example) of FUSE besides OnGetFileSecurity and OnSetFileSecurity callbacks?

Thanks for your help!

The OS passes all security-related information to the filesystem in the opaque manner via OnSetFileSecurity event (and reads it back via OnGetFileSecurity). Consequently, there's no easy way CBFS can pass you ACLs. It's your job to handle them if you wish.

I know that this is not very handy but we can't do much here without overly complicating the API.

Sincerely yours
