If /etc/securetty is present, login security is in effect, meaning that only users with appropriate privileges are allowed to login successfully on the ttys listed in this file. Restricted ttys are listed by device name, one per line. Valid tty names are dependent on installation. Some examples could be console, tty01, ttya1, etc. Note that this feature does not inhibit a normal user from using su.
