How to implement least privilege access for Unix admin users

A recent US Cert Alert recommends restricting users’ permissions to install and run unwanted software applications, and apply the principle of “Least Privilege” to all systems and services. But many Unix/Linux admin users needing a root or sudo to perform a privileged task often end up with full system access—a significant security risk that every organization needs to minimize or eliminate.

Thycotic’s Secret Server Product Manager Ben Yoder shows you how you can enforce greater control over what you admin users can do with root by leveraging Secret Server’s new Privilege Manager for Unix module. You’ll see how you can delegate privileged tasks to let users run specific jobs as root, without the security risk of giving them full control.
