[sudo-users] Audit tool for Sudo

I wrote such a thing, called sdrep, which unfortunately I can't distribute as it was done as part of a contract and I don't own it.

It works by parsing sudoers files which is surprisingly hard to do really reliably.  As a result of my whinging, Todd added a feature to sudo which means it can spit out a JSON file (thanks Todd!): I have a plan to redo sdrep to make use of this (and make the result more widely available) although I haven't made any significant progress.

A few years ago (2012?) when I wrote sdrep there did not seem to be any other tool which was really usable.
