The Require SSH Credentials assertion allows you to require a user's SSH credentials in a request. You can require either the user name and plain text password only, or the user name and public key only, or the user name and either the plain text password or the public key.
This assertion is a credential source that saves the user name with the password or public key from the SSH session for later authentication and authorization using the Authenticate User or Group Assertion.
Using the Assertion
- Do one of the following:
- To add the assertion to the Policy Development window, see Adding an Assertion.
- To change the configuration of an existing assertion, proceed to step 2 below.
- When adding the assertion, the Require SSH Credentials Properties automatically appear; when modifying the assertion, right-click Require SSH Credentials in the policy window and select Require SSH Credentials Properties or double-click the assertion in the policy window. The assertion properties are displayed.
- Specify the credentials that are required in the request: Password, Public Key, or both.
- Click [OK] when done.
