Up One Level

Super User


The term 'Super User', is one that denoted the highest level of user privilege and can allow unlimited access to a system's file and set-up. Usually, Super User is the highest level of privilege for applications, as opposed to operating or network systems. Notwithstanding the possible semantics, the use of Super User should be under dual control as such a user could, if they so wished, destroy the organisation's systems maliciously or simply by accident; neither is acceptable!
