    Limit available commands for user (linux)

    Pardon my Linux ignorance, but can anyone suggest a way as to which I can allow a single user to ssh to a box and issue only a command to execute an application and thatís it?

    If they need to be able to log in, get a shell, and then execute the command, look at "rbash" (it's part of the normal bash shell). I don't know how secure it is.

    You can also configure an ssh key so it only allows the user to run a single command. See for some info on this.

    Is is possible to use sudo for this also?

    Just tossing out ideas.
