I want to use SSH for the authentication purpose.
I do not want to enter any user name and password to the user.
I want to use only on the basis of private and public key.Is it
possible to implement only on the basis of public and private key.
I have heard that it is possible to implement in ssh-2
I have one more requirement . I want to distribute this keys from my
software. Is it possible to use my keys.
Basically i want to authenticate the machine which is making
connection to ssh server using public and private key. And this public
and private key are distributed by my server software.
Re: novice question related to authentication
It is possible.
Even in ssh 1.
Possibly. Need more information about exactly what you're trying to do.
You can distribute user private keys to the clients, then authorize that
key to access one (or more) accounts on the server.
Of course anyone that gets a copy of the private key will have the same
permissions as anyone else with that copy unless you're adding in other
So generally you want to avoid moving/copying/distributing private keys
as much as possible.
