i assigned super user privelledge to a user by specifing entries in pg_hba.conf file as 

host    all    newuser md5

and the default postgres user is made access to only the default postgres databse and is no more the super user.

the problem is that this conf file is available to all and can be changed again.

can someone assist me with a solution to make this changes static.
happy new year:-)

  when a superuser is logged in to the postgres server ,he has priveledge to access all the databases.

  can we hide the structure of some of the databases from the superuser?
  like if he gives command to open such a database the postgres may ask for access password again. 

  as in Oracle Database Vault, organizations can pro-actively safeguard application data stored in the Oracle database from being accessed by privileged database users
  kindly assist me if there exists any solution for this problem.
