Tectia Server 4.x (and earlier) required an authorization file that listed the
user public keys that are authorized for login. Using the authorization file
with Tectia Server 5.0 and later is optional. If the file does not exist, Tectia Server looks for
authorized public keys in the
authorized-keys directory (as
described in User Authentication with Public Keys above), and if that fails, in the
default directory for user public-keys.
The default location for the authorization file is
$HOME/.ssh2/authorization on Unix, and
%USERPROFILE%\.ssh2\authorization on Windows. The file
location can be changed with the authorization-file
attribute in the
The authorization file contains a list of public key filenames each
preceded by the keyword
Key. If there is more than one
Key, they are all authorized for login. For more
information on the syntax of the authorization file,
$HOME/.ssh2/authorization (user-specific) under
the section called “Files”.
Tectia Client on Windows can upload the public keys and edit the authorization file automatically.
