[sudo-users] RBAC .vs. SUDO

RBAC can give you the same functionality (and can be more flexible than sudo)...however, the big trade off here is ease of implementation.  You also have to setup your system to include the acl info which requires an additional inode for every file that uses it. (this can be a problem with inode limitations for those systems that have MANY small files and tend to run short on inodes).

Hi All

Any one can point me to a comparison chart or something similar on RBAC
.vs. SUDO. I am using sudo on all my Solaris systems for last five
years. However recently I am noticing some interest in our organization
about RBAC. I personally think SUDO can achieve the same features that
RBAC offer with ease but looking for opinions in this community.

Thanks for your feedback.
