Unlock "sudo" with TouchID on your Mac
Since I got my Magic Keybord with integrated TouchID, I don't rely on my password anymore to authenticate myself on my local machine. So I thought why not enable it for "sudo" commands in the Terminal as well?
Here is how:
sudo cp /etc/pam.d/sudo_local.template /etc/pam.d/sudo_local
Uncomment the following line in the newly copied
sudo_local file (e.g. with
sudo vi /etc/pam.d/sudo_local):
auth sufficient pam_tid.so
Save the file, and voilà!
You might have to
exit your current shell or open a new one before it works
