The Secure Shell protocol used by the SSH Tectia client/server solution provides mutual authentication – the client authenticates the server and the server authenticates the client. Both parties are assured of the identity of the other party.
The SSH Tectia Server host can authenticate itself using either traditional public-key authentication or certificate authentication.
Different methods can be used to authenticate Secure Shell client users. These authentication methods can be used separately or combined, depending on the level of functionality and security you want.
The server allows GSSAPI, public-key, keyboard-interactive, and password authentication by default.
