Post date: December 10, 2006, 20:12 Category: Security Views: 3484 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide describes how to generate and use a private/public key pair to log in to a remote system with SSH using PuTTY.

Using key-based SSH logins, you can disable the normal username/password login procedure which means that only people with a valid private/public key pair can log in. That way, there is no way for brute-force attacks to be successful, so your system is more secure.
