    Browsing through this forum I noticed that Jailshell was not the optimal solution to allow for a safe shell access.

    Does anyone know of a foolproof strategy to give a temporary shell access to a third party that has to do minor maintenance work on a website.

    I was thinking of creating a user from the command line and then changing the root dir and groupID to keep that user in one specific subdir in its account... But again that doesn't keep'em from walking through the directory tree...

    Any other solutions?
