Key Based Authentication in SSH

March 5, 2010 Posted in Security

I just changed my SSH authentication from password to key-based. If you are using password authentication, I strongly suggest you change it, it’s a must, the setup is also very easy, there is no any reasons you don’t do this. With all kinds of buggy programs and scripts, our servers are much much weaker than we thought.

Edit: Wrote a step by step guide for easy reference.
