configuring key-only ssh access


Recommended Posts

What's the _unraid way_ of turning on key-only login access to unraid host?

Can see there are some set of keys in /boot/config/ssh but there's no sshd_config found under /boot to enforce their usage. Why are there keys under boot/config/ssh to begin with if they're not used?


Just to be clear, the goal is to secure ssh access so no bad actor on LAN can wreak havoc.

Have you configured unraid SSH with key-only? If so, could you walk me through?

It should be just like any other SSH config setup. /root/.ssh is a soft link to /boot/config/ssh/root/ .

So inside /boot/config/ssh/root/ , create authorized_keys file via "touch authorized_keys".  Then you can copy and paste your info from you local machine's .ssh/ key file. Remember to use the PUBLIC key file, not the private.
