need to restrict users from doing a su to a selected group of users

Post by Vinay Kuma » Fri, 29 Mar 2002 10:49:00



Friends,
I need to restrict users doing a su to a selected group of users. Like user1
should be able to su to user2 but not user3 and user4.Iam sure one needs to
use sudo to achieve this. Is there any other way other than role based
access control lists and sudo. iam running Solaris 8.0
I tried to configure this in suo but somehow it doesntseem to work. Any
clue?
Thanks in advance
Kumar

Yeah: only tell the authorised users the right password!

Its a hack, but you could write a quick wrapper around su.

Hope this helps.

HEY vinay,

if user1 user2 user3 user4 are non root users then it is easy..
only user1 knows the passwd of the user 2 3 and 4 it is so easy..

and only user1 can do su - user1 user2 user3  with the passwd.

Hope this helps..

System V systems unfortunately do not support BSD style su, where you
can control who you can su to and not to using groups.
