Configuring SSH Authentication

Before you configure SSH authentication, obtain the contents of SSH key files. You can copy the contents of an SSH keys file into a CLI session:

  1. On a management machine such as a PC or personal workstation, create an ssh-rsa key:
    > ssh-keygen (provide input)> cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
  2. On the C Series Controller enter the set system login user testuser authentication ssh-authorized-key command, and paste in the SSH key:
    user@host# set system login user testuser authentication ssh-authorized-key pasted content of id_rsa.pub

    For example:

    user@host# set system login user testuser authentication ssh-authorized-key "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAIEAvSqAWNdMTQJS9eqG1eqRANI3ML4hH+u7WX/HP0W82gDSPpjghnt1e5de3D8U
