After I run the above command line I received the following output

/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/security authorizationdb read system.preferences > ~/Desktop/authdb.txt
I edit the file from:

/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/security authorizationdb write system.preferences < ~/Desktop/authdb.txt
My question is what is the
