comment Format vs Erase a flash disk?
Just to clarify, you mean erase = full format, and not simple delete (i.e., delete key from keyboard) ?

comment Notify when normal user changes to root?
@Fran No. Well when the username logs in to SSH he then use su instead direct root.

comment Notify when normal user changes to root?
@fran SSH brute force attack. I already have my SSH on different port as well as blocking failed login attempts but a little more security like this won't hurt. How this works is, in case the brute-forcer finds out the port, he will still have to know the username because root is disabled.

@speakr Well my plan is only one normal user will be given root, I want to do this just to prevent brute forcing root. So direct root is disabled and that single normal user must use su
