By default rules for access management are taken from config file
<filename>/etc/security/access.conf</filename> if you don't specify
+ Then individual <filename>*.conf</filename> files from the
+ <filename>/etc/security/access.d/</filename> directory are read.
+ The files are parsed one after another in the order of the system locale.
+ The effect of the individual files is the same as if all the files were
+ concatenated together in the order of parsing. This means that once
+ a pattern is matched in some file no further files are parsed.
+ If a config file is explicitly specified with the <option>accessfile</option>
+ option the files in the above directory are not parsed.
