Password and Keyboard Interactive Authentication

Reflection for Secure IT server supports both password and keyboard interactive authentication by default.

Authentication method

Description

Password

Prompts the client user for the login password for that user on the Secure Shell server host.

The password is sent to the host through the encrypted channel.

Keyboard interactive

Supports any procedure in which authentication data is entered using the keyboard, including simple password authentication, thereby enabling the Secure Shell client to support a range of authentication mechanisms, such as RSA SecurID tokens or RADIUS servers.

A client administrator could, for example, configure keyboard interactive authentication to handle situations in which multiple prompts are required, such as for password updates.

Keyboard data is sent to the host through the encrypted channel.

 

Note: Configure keyboard interactive authentication from the Password pane.
