How to share administrative power on Linux - without the security risks

Controlling, Delegating, Logging and Auditing UNIX Linux Root

In UNIX/Linux networks, all users requiring any amount of
administrative power are given access to the full power of root. This
limits the ability to share administrative power and creates risks
from the essentially un-auditable actions of system administrators.
This white paper explores a technology that makes it possible to
provide selective access to the root account and allows system
administration to be safely delegated among many users. Read on to
learn how you can do the following in your UNIX/Linux environment:

** Generate indelible audit trails
** Protect against viruses
** Centrally manage heterogeneous networks
** Provide selective access to administrative powers
