    Below is text for the AccessMode element for the Scan Service object.
    With appropriate minor changes, it can also be used for the corresponding
    AccessMode element of the Scan Job object.

    - Ira



    This element corresponds to the access mode property of a POSIX file and
    specifies the basic access control policy for the Scan Service object,
    as set by the Owner. Site-specific policies, e.g., Access Control Lists
    (ACLs), MUST NOT reduce the security required by this AccessMode element
    but MAY further restrict that security.

    The AccessMode element describes the basic access control policy for the
    Owner, members of the Owner's group (e.g., Administrators), and all
    other authenticated users (i.e., the 'World'). Typically, only the
    Owner or a member of the Owner's group (site-specific) is granted the
    Write permission, but the World is granted Read permission (e.g., to
    read elements such as capabilities) and Execute permission (e.g., to
    send Job creation operations to the Scan Service object).
