How to Enable sudo I/O Logging (Doc ID 2774394.1)

Last updated on MAY 28, 2021

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.9 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

Enable sudo I/O logging

Refer to the sudo manul, sudo will normally only log the command it explicitly runs. If a user runs a command such as sudo su or sudo sh, subsequent
commands run from that shell are not subject to sudo’s security policy. The same is true for commands that offer shell escapes (including most
editors). If I/O logging is enabled, subsequent commands will have their input and/or output logged, but there will not be traditional logs for those commands.
