Sudo replacement vsys on the way

Joab Jackson writes for Computerworld:

Researchers at the PlanetLab global research network have developed a potential replacement for the widely used Unix sudo tool, called Vsys, that will offer administrators far greater control over what end users can and can’t access.

“Vsys is a tool for restricting access to privileged operations,” said Princeton University’s PlanetLab researcher Sapan Bhatia, who introduced the technology at the Usenix conference held last week in Portland, Oregon.
