Why this tool?

This plugin is useful for companies with strict regulations on access to systems, especially when its a privileged session. It may also be used for allowing a third party access to your systems with strict control and real-time monitoring of the session.

How it works

When running a typical sudo command to increase privileges, this plugin will create a session ID and provides a command to share with another engineer. This engineer is the one who will start the session and monitor your activities. When he or she started the session, the session is mirrored to both and you will see the same commands and output.
