SSH: passwords or keys?
Posted Jan 14, 2010 13:09 UTC (Thu) by iq-0 (subscriber, #36655)
And now people who have enough privileges can directly copy files from/to
the server or trigger mass updates accross all machines (which is trickier
to do if you want to do that via a regular user account).
Currently we only have to update the authorized_keys file of the role
accounts and in the case of separate role acccounts we'd probably need some
sort of password verification for the su/sudo behaviour, which is now done
through the smartcard key-based login.
