Read privilieges and command privileges in Takanga
I'm new in this forum and I'm glad I found it.
I need to know if there is a way to restrict access for a user in Linux (Red Hat 5 - Tikanga) for a particular folder and its subfolders, with only read privileges, plus restrictions to certain commands.
The problem is that in my company the burocracy is enormous and I don't have access to logs in real time; I have to wait an hour for logs to be compress and put in some other server. This dimishes service levels and also is pretty frustating. The reason, one among others, for that restriction, is that if they give me some user to access folders in that environment I could make the spool process collapse by viewing some 10GB file and screw up the entire machine. Other than that, is a matter of pure intransigence.
I have to demonstrate to them that, somehow, through some app, access can be block to vi if the file is greater than some size threshold.
