What is this for?
django-sudo provides an extra layer of security for after a user is already logged in. Views can
be decorated with
@sudo_required, and then a user
must re-enter their password to view that page. After verifying their password, that user has
elevated permissions for the duration of
SUDO_COOKIE_AGE. This duration is independent of the
normal session duration allowing short elevated permission durations, but retain long user sessions.
