    Configuring Authentication for SRC User Accounts (SRC CLI)

    You can configure user accounts by using the following methods:

    Configuring a Plain Text Password

    To configure a plain text password for a user account:

    • At the [edit system user user-name ] hierarchy, enter the set authentication plain text-password command. For example:
      [edit system user JASmith]user@host# set authentication plain-text-password New password: type password here Retype new password: retype password here

    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
