SSH and RSA
Recently I was made administrator over a dozen Solaris boxen <heh>
The prior admin was offsite and used ssh with rsa keys to access the boxes.
He allowed root login, and used the RSA key functionality to keep the root
I am not as mature as he was regarding ssh <newbie> and have only used
ssh as a plug in replacement to telnet, <I tend to not set a different
ssh-keygen> and simply access the boxes as follows: ssh -l <me> <hostname>
then I login using the normal p/w that is local to the box. I have found
that he did
not need to transmit the local password over the tunnel, but rather used
verify his identity, but I can't find documentation on how to do it.
<man ssh, man ssh-agent, man ssh-add, Practical UNIX & Internet
Security> does anyone have any information on how I can implement the
same safeguards? Or where I can at least find some documentation on
practical ssh implementation.
As always, You guys are great, thanks in advance for the help,
The plan was simple. Unfortunately, so was Bullwinkle.
