GNU Rush
Restricted User Shell with sophisticated configuration files.

Rush is a restricted user shell, for systems on which users are to be provided with only limited functionality or resources. Administrators set user rights via a configuration file which can be used to limit, for example, the commands that can be executed, CPU time, or virtual memory usage.

The present restricted shell is an alternative to the well known rssh package, which provides similar capabilities.
