/usr/doc/postgresql/README.Debian says:
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.
