Re: [Linux-cluster] Quick off topic question



Keep in mind, that Bash does some interesting tricks with its bash_history.
(like maintaining a single history per session and fusing them afterwards).

It might be a good idea to mail&wipe the .bash_history file upon logout.


If you want to use the .bash_history file for autiding:
Some O/S'es / filesystems allow write-only access to files.
This would make sure the user cannot 'edit' the file to remove any traces.
(This is usually limited to /var/log, so I don't know if it can be applied
to a single file)
