Re: Authentication to SSHd server


Public keys doesnt work like that. The server has no clue if the
private key used had password protection or not.
You can however (I think, please correct me if i'm wrong), use pam,
and force both password (/etc/passwd) local password, AND only show
this password login, if an valid key is used.
Basicly, you use ssh-key only, and then use pam to ask for the
password later on..

Hi guys,

I wanna know if it is possible to force authentication to a OpenSSH
server by a password and by a RSA Key(With a Passphrase on it). In
this manner, it would be impossible for a attacker to brute force just
the password to get credential of the SSH server.

Thanks for your help

The OpenSSH version I use is the Latest Stable Release (4.7)
