I believe the settings specific to each user take precedence over the
If you were to create a new user, the default settings are used. You will
have to override the default settings later.

I was reviewing the /etc/security/user file in a few AIX machines. I
noticed that the file contains default: and each user id. Somehow, I also
noticed that the settings were different in the default and other user ids.
Under this situation, which settings are working? The settings in default:
or in a specific user id?
In the default:
maxage = 0
but in an user id:
maxage = 4
minlen = 8
which will work?
