Public key authentication with ssh

Postby chavar » Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:48 am

Is it possible to work with public key authentication when connecting with ssh to the FX30 modem? I generated the keys on the FX30 using the 'dropbearkey -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa' command, saved the public key to ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub file, appended it to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file and /etc/dropbear/authorized_keys file but ssh still requests a password.

Public key authentication provides SSH users with the convenience of logging in to their Linodes without entering their passwords. SSH keys are also more secure than passwords, because the private key used to secure the connection is never shared.
