using freebsd 5.2 release.
Below you can see what is not commented out in my sshd_config file, which is almost the default: #$FreeBSD: src/crypto/openssh/sshd_config,v 1.33 2003/09/24 19:20:23 des Exp $ #VersionAddendum FreeBSD-20030924 Protocol 2 ListenAddress x.y.z.x LoginGraceTime 60 PubkeyAuthentication yes PasswordAuthentication no PermitEmptyPasswords no PrintMotd yes PrintLastLog yes AllowGroups ssh Banner /usr/local/etc/ssh/banner Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/sftp-server
I'm using ssh windows client version 3.2.9 from: http://www.ssh.com I get a passphrase prompt, I enter xyz, press enter, than I'm prompted to enter my "password", I enter the password and I have my prompt: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
Is this a security bug, a misconfiguration or what?
I thought I had disabled password authentication with: PasswordAuthentication no
thx a lot
you did. from ssh's point of view. however, pam is enabled, and it allows password authentication. to do what you're asking, edit sshd_config again, and toggle this line
# Change to no to disable PAM authentication ChallengeResponseAuthentication no
this is my fix, it allows only pubkey logins. i'm sure this is also possible with PAM, and actually, would love to know how that works too :)
hope this helps ~j
