Superuser Privilege Management (SUPM)

What is Superuser Privilege Management?

On Unix systems, superusers are users who gain privileged access for a limited period of time.

Unix allows certain users to elevate their privilege to superuser status for a specific task, and when they’ve completed their task they revert to being a standard user. Superuser privilege management controls when users are allowed to elevate to superuser status, and what commands they can run in superuser mode.
