comment How can I find out which user logged in as root?
Hm :-/ I'm wondering what the security implications are when we create dozens of user accounts on our many servers. Feels like one of the security dilemmas: Comfort vs. security. If I use .authorized_keys, I have a single file (with a very simple format) but I can't easily find out who connected. sshsudo looks interesting but I wonder how sshpass does its magic.

Actually, I'd prefer a "this user can execute this command with root permissions" command/tool (so your actions would still be logged under your user). I don't want to become root, I just need its permissions. Kind of "you can do anything you want but whoami still returns digulla.

When I wrote this, sudo wasn't very common. Today, I'd say sudo is nice if you admin just a single machine and/or if you have to run just a single command. But in my case, 90% of the time, I need to do remote work. So I ssh and then I'd have to sudo. If you switch between local and remote all the time and you have to run many commands, I still prefer ssh (or one way to do everything).
