    Is it possible to change sudo su to something else, maybe magic carpet or some other term or is that a hard and fast command?

    My thought is, the more things that are common and static, the lower the fence is to hurdle.

    Hello :)

    You could create an alias, but that's not going to add any security benefits. It's likely a better idea to just improve your overall security rather than attempting to change the name for "sudo".

    Thank you.
