using SSH public key authentication

Speaker: Michael Richardson

This talk will explain the basics of using SSH public key authentication for secure logins. While many people understand how to use SSH to do a remote login, the rise of automated attack tools that break password use of SSH means that this method is no longer enough.

This talk is aimed at novice to intermediate users. A tutorial will occur in the near future.
