I studied engineering/management of technology but got tossed into the world of web development after working years in a project management capacity.

Work with healthcare/insurance companies to develop custom database and reporting solutions along with online enrollment applications.

@Mlfe - then how would you handle the password per my question. An incredibly difficult password to remember? One the user sets (and likely is easy? One that is cumbersome to enter each time (which could slow down development drastically if sudo actions are needed often)?

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I suppose the only benefit of having sudo passwords after SSH key authentication would be to add an extra layer of security (albeit likely unnecessary). It seems if somebody already has access to the server by getting past your password protected ssh key then you have bigger problems and would likely be susceptible anyway. Is that your thought?

comment Is there an easier way to add public-key authentication for new users?
@EEAA - perhaps worth another question but I'm running into an issue where I am trying change the user home directory OR chroot them direct into the web directory for sending up files but their authorized_key is still in the /home/username directory. Is it possible (for multiple users) to have keys stored in the /home/username(s) directory and only allow them access to specific directories which sit outside /home/username(s)?

@EEAA - why you say that? It is just as fast as vi and easier to use IMO.

@MichaelMcNally - good suggestion. I'll look into the script and also into something like Puppet. I'm new to this so trying to get my feet wet as quickly as possible.
