Dear all !

I have a little problem with sudo :

when I do not use the NOPASSWD: directive, the user which light use sudo is
only asked once for a password. Afterwards, even after logging out, he may
enter commands without typing a password.

I have heard that sudo implements a kind of "time buffer", that sayd a
duration within which it remembers the password of a user.

Is it possoble to somehow disable that grace period ?

Thanks a lot in advance for any information

Kind regards,
