rcsh Documentation Status Updates

Non-interactive command whitelisted shell

This is a work-in-progress little script intended to be used as a shell for Linux user accounts which are allowed to run a limited set of commands over SSH non-interactively and nothing else. The commands which are allowed are based on a whitelist of exact command invocation strings and/or a list of regular expressions which they should match.


  • Allow execution of commands based on an exact or regular expression whitelist

  • Log invocation using syslog’s LOG_AUTH facilities
