Using Password Authentication

Password authentication is the most commonly used form of user authentication. It is enabled by default and uses the RACF system password of the user.

There are two cases where it cannot be used in SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS:

  • When running SSH Tectia client programs from JCL there is no facility for getting the password from the user. Use public-key authentication and a private key without a passphrase. See Section User Authentication with Public Keys.
  • Password authentication is not available when running SSH Tectia client programs from the TSO OMVS shell because the shell cannot guarantee that the password will be hidden on the screen. Use a Telnet shell or Secure Shell, or set up public-key authentication using a private key without a passphrase.

For more information on password authentication, see Section User Authentication with Passwords.
