you can use chmod and chown to give the previliges to user

for eg.  a folder call /share for userA to have read write only other users can't access so

chown userA /share
chmod 700 /share

this will only allow userA to access the /share

but if you want userA and userB to access /share together, you might need to add a group to use the groups access right to control

groupadd share

usermod -G share userA userB    <-- this will assign userA and userB to belong to share group
chown root:share /share             <-- now the /share folder owned by root and also the share group
chmod 770 /share                      <--  this will allow root and the member of share group to access the /share folder.

normally mode # 1 = execute mode # 2 = write mode # 4 = read

so 1 + 2 + 4 (7) will be full access, if only read write should 2 + 4 (6)

will this what you looking for??
