Disabling SSH direct access for an AIX user

Hello everyone,

Can anyone help me please. I want to disable SSH direct access for an AIX user.

For example, if I have USER1 and USER2. I want to disactivate direct access for USER2. The user must enter his login (USER1) and his password and then he can do
Code:
su - USER2

.

Thanks,

It should be enough to use:

Code:
# chuser rlogin=false USER2

You may also want to turn off "local/console" logins as well.


Code:
# chuser login=false rlogin=false USER2

Additionally, you can create a special group and put USER1 (i.e. any user permitted to su to USER2 account) into that group (e.g., su_user2)

Code:
# chuser sugroups=su_user2 USER2
