I work at an office with other people on data analysis, from which only one of them has root permissions to our shared computing cluster. Some have a suspicion that the person with root permissions is going inside other people’s directories to take a look at their code and extract ideas or fragments without permission.
Is there a way in Linux to see which user was taking a look at specific files or folders? This might help to clarify the suspicions. Which way do you recommend (that can be applied by someone that is not root) in this case that the suspect about the root’s activity? Without this, nothing can be done to prove that this person is doing this, so any suggestion will help. Regards.
