This software aims to be a UNIX tool for generic secure usage when in need of privilege escalation. It is designed to run SUID, with "super-user powers" to execute things as root on the system it is installed.
Main differences compared to sudo:
- Easier audit thanks to literate development methodology
- Fewer lines of code, fewer features, fewer dependencies
- No configuration file, no parsers
- Public domain licensing
SUD is designed for security: it leverages all possible measures to
avoid vulnerabilities, primarily the reduction of complexity in its
own design and implementation.
