Shell - key *only* access?


#1

Hello.

Is it possible to disable the user/password access mode on an account on ssh access and use ONLY key authentication?

(This is the equivalent of setting “PasswordAuthentication no” in the sshd_config file.)

thanks

I don’t think you can at this point in time.

As an alternative, have you considered setting your account password to something long and obscure and possibly even generated?

Thanks. I guess that would be one way to do it, thanks again.
