opiesu - Replacement su(1) program that uses OPIE challenges
opiesu [ -f ] [ -c ] [ user_name ]
|-f||If the invoked shell is csh(1), this option prevents it from reading the ‘‘.cshrc’’ file. (The [f] option may be passed as a shell argument after the login name, so this option is redundant and obsolescent.)|
|-c||Set console mode where the user is expected to have secure access to the system. In console mode, you will be asked to input your password directly instead of having to use an OPIE calculator. If you do not have secure access to the system (i.e., you are not on the system’s console), you are volunteering your password to attackers by using this mode.|
|The name of the user to become. The default is root.|
