Sudo (su "do") is an open source command-line software that lets regular users to execute various commands that need root privileges as a system administrator under UNIX/Linux based operating systems.

However, not all users have access to the sudo command in a Linux environment, but only certain users or groups of users have this ability, as configured by the system administrator.

All the commands, as well as their arguments, run (as root) by a regular user are logged by default in the default logs directory of the respective Linux operating system. All Linux distributions include the sudo command by default.
