User Authentication with Keyboard-Interactive

Keyboard-Interactive is a generic authentication method that can be used to implement different types of authentication mechanisms. Any currently supported authentication method that requires only the user's input can be performed with Keyboard-Interactive.

Currently, the following methods are supported:

  • password
  • PAM (see note below)
  • RSA SecurID
  • RADIUS

Methods that require passing some binary information, such as public-key authentication, cannot be used as submethods of Keyboard-Interactive. But public-key authentication, for example, can be used as an additional method alongside Keyboard-Interactive authentication.

Note: PAM has support for binary messages and client-side agents, and those cannot be supported with Keyboard-Interactive. However, currently there are no implementations that take advantage of the binary messages in PAM, and the specification may not be cast in stone yet.
