Sudo mastery : user access control for real people / by Michael W. Lucas. - [United States] : Tilted Windmill Press, c2013. - vii, 120 p. : ill. ; 23 cm.

Includes index.

Unix-like operating systems have a primitive access control system. The root account can do anything. Other users are peasants with only minimal system access. This worked fine in UNIX's youth, but today, system administration responsibilities are spread among many people and applications. Each person needs a tiny slice of root's power. Sudo lets you divide the root's monolithic power between people who need it with accountability and auditability. -- Back cover.
