What are the 3 types of permissions? Permission Types

Someone with write permission may modify the contents of a file, including adding, changing, or deleting file contents.

You could create a group containing just the two users that should have access and make that the owning group of the file (and give the desired permissions to that group).
What are the 3 permission groups? – Each permission group has three permissions, called a permission set. – Each set consists of read, write, and execute permissions.
