raou is a lightweight sudo-like tool for Linux. It allows a user to execute programs as another user without entering the password. However, the programs (including the parameters) a user can run are explicitly specified by the administrator.

Originally written in C, it's now reimplemented in Rust.

By default, raou looks in /etc/raou.d/ for config files. If you run "raou backup", it will look for /etc/raou.d/backup.

Example config file:

user john
target_user root
path /usr/local/bin/

user is the name of the user who you want to give permissions to execute path as the target_user.

path must contain the absolute path.

Optional fields

args: If you want to leave out optional arguments (argv) to path, simply don't include this. Otherwise, simply specify them

args -v -ltr 

allow_args: Allow arbitrary arguments, so:

raou backup /path

Will launch "path" as specified in the file for the backup entry with "/path" as argv[1] instead of the argument specified with "args" in the config file.

no_new_privs: Defaults to 1. Processes launched with this option active won't be able to gain more privileges, even when they call setuid programs.

env_vars: A comma-separated list of environment variables to inherit from the current environment. Everything else will be wiped (but others like HOME, SHELL etc. will be appropriately set).

argv0: Set this option if you want to provide your own value as "argv0" The default is the name of the launched binary (not the whole path).
