SSH

Host-Based User Authentication

Host-based authentication uses the public host key of the client machine to authenticate a user to the remote server. The remote Secure Shell server can be either a Unix, Windows, or z/OS server.

Setting up host-based authentication usually requires administrator (root) privileges on the server. The setup is explained in the Tectia Server for IBM z/OS Administrator Manual.
