Summary: server access control program for X

The xhost program is used to add and delete host names or user names to
the list allowed to make connections to the X server.  In the  case  of
hosts,  this  provides  a rudimentary form of privacy control and secu-
rity.  It is only sufficient for a workstation (single  user)  environ-
ment,  although  it  does  limit  the worst abuses.  Environments which
require more sophisticated measures  should  implement  the  user-based
mechanism  or use the hooks in the protocol for passing other authenti-
cation data to the server.
