Post date: June 26, 2008, 10:06 Category: Views: 4599 Comments
Tutorial quote: The current leading SSH server, OpenSSH, offers two main methods of authentication: interactive password and public key authentication. While interactive password authentication is the default, there are several reasons for using public key authentication. After reading some background information about public key cryptography, you should have a firm understanding of what public key cryptography is and how it works. You're welcome to skip straight to generating keys for use with SSH. Setting up public key authentication will require a few minutes, but the results are worthwhile.
