                      3: Normally a user can use the **ps** command to see any process running on a system.

                      5: A user may be able to "see" only her own processes thanks to the **security.curtain** sysctl option.

                     12:     
                     13:

                     16:     # ps auxww
                     17:     
                     18: 
                     19: You should be able to see only processes belonging to your user.
