Setting up Non-Interactive Server and User Authentication

The Secure Shell protocol used by the SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS 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 Secure Shell 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 combined or used separately, depending on the level of functionality and security you want.

The SSH Tectia client on z/OS uses the following user authentication methods by default (in order): public-key, keyboard-interactive, and password authentication. In addition, the client supports host-based authentication.

The SSH Tectia server on z/OS allows public-key and password authentication by default. In addition, the server supports keyboard-interactive and host-based authentication.

This chapter gives instructions for setting up non-interactive authentication for server and user using public keys. For information on the other authentication methods, see SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS Administrator Manual.

Most of the examples in this chapter are executed from Unix shell (for example, OMVS shell), but the same commands can also be run in JCL using BPXBATCH.
