Configuration of the backend is done by editing the configuration file
Access control is first of all governed by whether the postmaster uses
the -i option (which allows TCP/IP connections). If this option is
not used, only Unix socket connections are used; which limits access to
processes running on the same machine. Next, the configuration file
/etc/postgresql/pg_hba.conf allows a finer-grained control of access
by user and by host.
