Let's say I got a bunch of untrusted machines and I would like would
like to manage them using ssh.
If I stored private keys on the machines(one for each) than the
someone might be able to retrive them. And than be able to connect to
the same machine from other machines. (The machines are restored to
their original state after each user.)
But if I stored the same public key on all the machines and I had the
private key on my machine than I would be able to connect to the
machines without the problems I described above.
Is this public key on server and private key on client scenario
somehow possible with ssh?
Re: Reversed ssh security possible? (public key on server, private key on ?client)
I'm not sure which private keys you're referring to. Every SSH server
has a private host key, but it doesn't require private user keys for
For user keys, that's correct. Unless this is an unattended access,
it's usually desirable to encrypt the private key and use a passphrase
to access it.
That's the way that user keys work.
