SecurID Auth for OpenSSH
Now this is a kewl idea! There is now a securid patch for openssh that supports RSA's SecurID tokens properly, including "New Pin" and "Next Pin" functionality.
This just rocks. Now if only the RSA Ace/Server and it's agents were not so expensive, more people could use this. I LOVE RSA's two factor authentication with SecurID. I think USB auth is just not feasible since most people don't HAVE access to their USB port that easily. I don't even mind buying new tokens every few years. What we need though is a nice open source Ace/Server so small businesses can actually afford to use it!
Anyways, if you happen to be a lucky person with an Ace/Server, now you can tie it to your SSH logins!Posted by SilverStr at September 29, 2003 12:12 PM
