10.4: Disable ssh password login under Tiger
Authored by: vykor on Aug 19, '05 02:44:12PM

What's the advantage to ChallengeResponse and PAM as opposed to plain old password authentication in SSH? It seems that these are both password-level authentication schemes. Seems a bit redundant for the same level of security (or lack thereof).
