TOPIC: Support for SSH CA certificate

Support for SSH CA certificate 2 Years, 11 Months ago  
I would like to request support for SSH ca certificate. I would like the client to have option of trusted CAs and the client should trust host keys signed by the CA.

Here are some links on how that feature works.

www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials...-clients-with-ubuntu
neocri.me/documentation/using-openssh-ce...cate-authentication/

We use SSH CA in workplace and its much more secure to trust the CA rather than just accept unknown host key when logging into a new machine for the first time.

Interesting idea, I'll have to do some more reading....

Are you aware of any other SSH clients doing this already, other than OpenSSH?

Another solution for centralized certificates is GSSAPI, already supported by Absolute. This way, Absolute authenticates host keys against your ActiveDirectory server.
