Hello all,
I've been asked by a friend to help better secure his CentOS server(s).Specifically, the current task at hand is to try and enforce group memberships and role permissions. Right now, the rascals are just su/sudo as 'root' to do the things they need to and obviously this is not secure.
There's some programmers/developers writing software and they need the ability to:1) start/stop web server2) install and update development libraries and utilities.
Defining the group 'programmer' is not the problem. I don't know how to go about setting permissions for the role 'developer'. 
Does anybody have some experience in setting up a role with these kinds of privileges?
