Fine grain sudo
sudo may be configured to stop requesting passwords for specific commands to specific users or groups. This is very convenient for personal computers where there is only a user (and therefore she’s the administrator).

For other users, the
sudo behaviour do not change.
Defaults env_reset, insults Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin" Defaults timestamp_timeout=15 Cmnd_Alias APT = /usr/bin/apt, /usr/bin/apt-get, /usr/bin/dpkg %sudo ALL = ALL, NOPASSWD: APT
Option ‘timestamp_timeout’ sets the time (in minutes) that the password will remain in cache, so it will not ask for it during that period. The value 0 disables the cache.
