  • Allow more SSH key algorithms (ecdsa-sha2-*)

    • Annoyance



    please allow other SSH key algorithms, e.g. ecdsa-sha2-nistp521.


    1. Go to /Users/UserEdit?name=root
    2. Under "SSH authorized keys", paste a ecdsa-sha2-nistp521 public key
    3. Click save
    4. Get error message "[1] ecdsa-sha2-nistp521: Syntax of the key is incorrect!"


    The source code of the page contains the "checkKey" function, which only checks for a few algorithms (ssh-ed25519, [email protected], ssh-rsa). Please revise this function so that it works more generally. Perhaps as a blocklist rather than an allowlist.
