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:
PAM (see note below)
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.
