Why go to all this trouble when you can use a one-liner
Authored by: kd4ttc on Oct 05, '06 05:30:40PM

At this point you need to give your users public key authentication so they can log in without user passwords. You should want then to use SSH. They possibly might have something in their files that would compromise your system, such as notes they took on logging in to your computer. The way to protect your system is by setting permissions correctly for each user that is logging onto your system. Without limiting permissions you have a very vulnerable system.
