SSH Tectia

User Authentication with Passwords

The password authentication method is the easiest to implement, as it is set up by default. Since all communication is encrypted, passwords are not available for eavesdroppers.

To enable password authentication on the client, the authentication-methods element of the ssh-broker-config.xml file must contain an authentication-method element with the name attribute value password:

<authentication-methods>
...
  <authentication-method name="password" />
</authentication-methods>

Other authentication methods can be listed in the configuration file as well. Place the least interactive method first (password is usually the last one).
