ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 24, 2011 News Facts:
Todd Miller, maintainer of open source Sudo project and Software Developer at Quest Software
“Sudo has come a long way over the past 15 years, and is now available on most Unix and Linux systems. As a result, I often receive requests to add new functionality, not all of which are suitable for inclusion directly in Sudo itself. By adding a modular framework to Sudo, it is now possible for third parties to extend Sudo's functionality via pluggable modules. These modules can be configured to load at run time so that, for example, Sudo can use an external policy server. I am excited to see how the open source community extends Sudo by building new modules as Quest has done.”
Jackson Shaw, Sr. Director of Product Management, Quest Software
“Quest greatly values the work of the open source community, and our commitment is demonstrated by our support of the Sudo project, as well as development of the plug-ins to support the new architecture. By sponsoring the Sudo project, Quest is enabling project maintainers to move Sudo a major step forward, while expanding Sudo’s relevance in the larger identity and access market. Most importantly, this ensures that Sudo will always remain a true open source solution.”
