I am a new Linux administrator and I am trying to setup an ssh connection from a VPN machine to my internal Linux box. This process is a bit confusing to me... Currently the company has a Windows RSA server used for authentication with its RSA SecureID Cards...
As I understand the logic flow.. The code on these card change every X number of minutes... Now somehow I am assuming that the RSA server keeps track of these.. perhaps I am wrong on that... So the outside request will come to the FW, whre we have a rule in place to allow ssh to destination machine from remote machine... On destination machine ( my linux box) I need to confiure SSH and PAM to use the RSA authentication..
I do not understand how to set up ssh on my linux box (which is the destination machine) such that when the connection comes through that it use the RSA server for authentication... I read about creting public and private keys, but how does that interact with the RSA server itself.. Where does PAM come into play? As I do not see any library modules for RSA under /etc/pam.d/sshd Can some one please help?
