Sudo for Windows (sudowin) 0.4.2-r208
This application allows you to run programs without you needing to login as an administrative user
There are other tools available that provide similar functionality, but they are all lacking in some respects. These tools are not configurable, they are not extensible, or worse yet, they actually create security holes because they are subject to man-in-the-middle attacks.
Sudo for Windows is out-of-the-box configurable. There is not one setting that you cannot change simply by editing a text file. And because of its plugin architecture, anyone with some programming experience can develop custom authentication and authorization plugins, extending its capabilities even further.
Most importantly, Sudo for Windows does not decrease security by creating man-in-the-middle-attacks for malicious users and disgruntled administrators to exploit. This software will increase your overall security by enabling your entire enterprise to run in Least User Access (LUA) mode.
