Hardware Authentication

Hi All,

I just wanted to let you know that I just purchased a swekey.

I was intrigued by this USB token that claimed to be usable with ssh.

I must admit that it is worth the $15 to have a token that is
compatible for Windows, MacOS and Linux.

Installing the pam module for ssh was kind of tricky but they have
good and responsive tech support.

Login with a swekey using a regular ssh client can be annoying since
you have to copy/paste a One Time Password from your web browser to
the ssh session. But if you use their customized PuTTY ssh client
(windows only), the input of the OTP is fully automated, and that is
definitely the way to go.
