inherited rights filterAn entry in an object's access control list (ACL) that specifies which rights can and cannot flow down to the object and its subordinates. Only inherited rights can be filtered. Rights granted at the current level, either by explicit assignment or by security equivalence, cannot be blocked. The Supervisor right can be blocked to an object but not to a file or directory. Object rights and property rights are inherited and filtered separately; therefore, object and property rights can be blocked individually without affecting each other.
