SSH

Password Submethod

Password authentication can also be used over keyboard-interactive.

The following example shows settings for allowing keyboard-interactive authentication using the password submethod in the ssh-server-config.xml file:

<authentication-methods>
  <authentication action="allow">
    <auth-keyboard-interactive max-tries="3" failure-delay="2">
      <submethod-password />
    </auth-keyboard-interactive>
  ...
  </authentication>
</authentication-methods>
