ISPConfig public key authentication?
 
I have been using public key authentication for SSH and really like it. It is much more secure than password authentication and easier to use once you set it up.

Is there a way to setup ISPConfig so that any access requires public key authentication rather than a password? That way only users who have the private key on their client machine could access ISPConfig.

Even better would be if the entire ISPConfig Apache server used public key. That way I could secure other applications like phpMyAdmin that are installed on ISPConfig's dedicated Apache server.

No, you'd have to set this up manually.

I'm currently implementing that feature.

I would be greatly interested in your code / scripts / way to do it.

When you're done, if you could post everything to the community... thanks in advance ;)

That feature has been implemented, and it is in the SVN trunk.
It is waiting for approval to be included in a future release.

Please feel free to test it.

There is no documentation yet. If you have questions please feel free to ask them here.

:cool:

Has this been approved for an upcoming release? I'm really looking forward to it.

Someone who is not a dev in ISPconfig needs to test it.

As far as I saw, it works, ...
.. and if there are any issues with it, I'll fix them.

You guys just need to make 'preassure' that you want to have this feature officially released. :) ...

Any update on that?

Public Key Authentication is under the features, since longer, this thread is outdated.

When creating a new shell user, you can add SSH-RSA Public Key (for key-based logins)

Great! Thanks :)
