10.5: Use public keys with SSH in 10.5
Authored by: timhaigh on Apr 26, '09 08:02:02AM

This topic of this hint is "Leopard has now a built-in support for SSH authentication with public keys. "

Tiger had support for public key authentication and so did Panther.

The difference in Leopard is that supports SACLS. You can lock down SSH even more by specifically naming a user in the sharing preferences who can login via SSH.

The other difference is that if you use a passphrase with your key then the mac stores it in the keychain.

Perhaps the hint could have been a bit more descriptive.
