LXer: How to set up 2 step authentication for ssh on your Linux servers

Published at LXer:

One thing you should do is enable two-step authentication for secure shell. This means anyone attempting to get into your server via ssh will have to have both a password and a verification code. This is actually made fairly easy, thanks to the Google Authenticator. Let me walk you through the steps of setting this up.
