Ubuntu - Secure Shell
All the same access to your Lynda learning history and certifications. Same instructors. New platform. SSH, or Secure Shell, is a very widely used protocol for connecting to systems remotely to manage or use them. System administrators, developers, IT support people, and power users all need to know how to use it. In this course, I'll discuss the basics of SSH.
I won't go into a huge amount of detail about individual options and features, but I'll focus on the most commonly used scenarios. First, I'll show you how to connect to a SSH server from various platforms. Then, I'll give you a brief look at setting up an SSH tunnel.

By default, always use SSH keys. Today I'll show you how to generate SSH keys. If you have ssh command on your system, you probably have the ssh-keygen command as well. Without any command line options, ssh-keygen will ask you a few questions and create the key with default settings:. Most likely you'll have your preferences for SSH keys and it is much easier to just specify them when running the ssh-keygen command. Your email address will not be published.

Previous page 1 2 3 4 5 Next page.SSH is one of the most popular tools in the Linux and Unix world. SSH or Secure Shell as its name suggests creates secure shell connections to the remote systems. Most of the Linux system administrators prefer SSH to manage remotely. SSH creates encrypted channels to the remote system and transmits data through these secure channels. Simple usage of ssh is just providing hostname or IP address of remote system and connect.
The user name is supplied from current user. Simply current users username is used for remote system. In the previous example username is supplied by the session. What is we need to use different username for the remote connection? Adding username to the remote system IP address or hostname with sign like below can solve this. Ssh protocol uses TCP port 22 by default. Ssh clients also assumes remote system uses default port number. SSH is very advanced and feature-full protocol. SSH provides different protocols for authentication.
The default one is password-based authentication as we previously did. Key-based or certificate-based authentication is more secure than password-based authentication. To use key-based security public and private keys should be created for the user. We have previously created our keys. We can use these keys to automatically authenticate without providing any password.
First, we should deploy our public key to the remote system. Deployment is easy because of SSH tool named ssh-copy-id. Remote username and host provided like below. Our public key is deployed to the remote users authorized keys database. To run single line command on the remote hosts opening new shell and typing command may become hard work for us. SSH provides the ability to run commands remotely without opening an interactive bash shell.
This will run command ip address show on the remote system.
Guides to Using WinSCP
Alternative configuration can be specified with -F parameter like below. The general definition of port forwarding is tunneling local or remote system ports each other.This article is one of the top tutorials covering SSH on the Internet. It was originally written back in and was completely revised in to include new and more accurate information.
One of the older ways is to use the telnet program, which is available on most network capable operating systems. Accessing a shell account through the telnet method though poses a danger in that everything that you send or receive over that telnet session is visible in plain text on your local network, and the local network of the machine you are connecting to. So anyone who can "sniff" the connection in-between can see your username, password, email that you read, and commands that you run.
For these reasons you need a more sophisticated program than telnet to connect to a remote host. SSH, which is an acronym for Secure SHell, was designed and created to provide the best security when accessing another computer remotely.
Not only does it encrypt the session, it also provides better authentication facilities, as well as features like secure file transfer, X session forwarding, port forwarding and more so that you can increase the security of other protocols.
Of course, the higher the bits, the longer it will take to generate and use keys as well as the longer it will take to pass data over the connection. These two diagrams on the left show how a telnet session can be viewed by anyone on the network by using a sniffing program like Ethereal now called Wireshark or tcpdump.
It is really rather trivial to do this and so anyone on the network can steal your passwords and other information. The first diagram shows user jsmith logging in to a remote server through a telnet connection. He types his username jsmith and password C0lts06!
The second diagram shows how the data in an encrypted connection like SSH is encrypted on the network and so cannot be read by anyone who doesn't have the session-negotiated keys, which is just a fancy way of saying the data is scrambled. The server still can read the information, but only after negotiating the encrypted session with the client. When I say scrambled, I don't mean like the old cable pay channels where you can still kinda see things and hear the sound, I mean really scrambled.
Usually encryption means that the data has been changed to such a degree that unless you have the key, its really hard to crack the code with a computer. It will take on the order of years for commonly available computer hardware to crack the encrypted data. The premise being that by the time you could crack it, the data is worthless. This tutorial isn't going to cover how to install SSH, but will cover how to use it for a variety of tasks. Chances are that if you are using a version of Linux that was released afterthat you already have OpenSSH installed.
As of this writing Octoberthe latest version available is 5. If you are using anything lower than version 3. To really make ssh useful, you need a shell account on a remote machine, such as on a Suso account. The first thing we'll do is simply connect to a remote machine. This is accomplished by running 'ssh hostname' on your local machine.
The hostname that you supply as an argument is the hostname of the remote machine that you want to connect to. By default ssh will assume that you want to authenticate as the same user you use on your local machine. To override this and use a different user, simply use remoteusername hostname as the argument. Such as in this example:. The authenticity of host 'arvo. RSA key fingerprint is b4:ad:cb:cac:c1:bb. It is important to pay attention to this question however because this is one of SSH's major features.
Host validation.Ansible can do much more, but you should understand the most common use case before exploring all the powerful configuration, deployment, and orchestration features of Ansible.
This page illustrates the basic process with a simple inventory and an ad-hoc command. Once you understand how Ansible works, you can read more details about ad-hoc commandsorganize your infrastructure with inventoryand harness the full power of Ansible with playbooks.
Ansible reads information about which machines you want to manage from your inventory. Although you can pass an IP address to an ad-hoc command, you need inventory to take advantage of the full flexibility and repeatability of Ansible.
You can create aliasesset variable values for a single host with host varsor set variable values for multiple hosts with group vars. Ansible communicates with remote machines over the SSH protocol. Confirm that you can connect using SSH to all the nodes in your inventory using the same username.
See Controlling how Ansible behaves: precedence rules for details on the sometimes unintuitive precedence of each method of passing user information.
You can read more about connections in Connection methods and details. Once it has connected, Ansible transfers the modules required by your command or playbook to the remote machine s for execution. The files are placed in a temporary directory and executed from there.
If you need privilege escalation sudo and similar to run a command, pass the become flags:. You can read more about privilege escalation in Understanding privilege escalation: become.
You have contacted your nodes using Ansible. You used a basic inventory file and an ad-hoc command to direct Ansible to connect to specific remote nodes, copy a module file there and execute it, and return output. You have a fully working infrastructure. Next you can read about more real-world cases in Introduction to ad-hoc commandsexplore what you can do with different modules, or read about the Ansible Working With Playbooks language.
Ansible is not just about running commands, it also has powerful configuration management and deployment features. Ansible 2. A basic Ansible command or playbook: selects machines to execute against from inventory connects to those machines or network devices, or other managed nodesusually over SSH copies one or more modules to the remote machines and starts execution there Ansible can do much more, but you should understand the most common use case before exploring all the powerful configuration, deployment, and orchestration features of Ansible.

As we grow, we are looking for talented and motivated people help build security solutions for amazing organizations. PuTTY is a versatile terminal program for Windows. It is the world's most popular free SSH client. It supports SSHtelnetand raw socket connections with good terminal emulation.
It supports public key authentication and Kerberos single-sign-on. PuTTY on Linux. PuTTY on Mac. There many SSH clients that are more modern. A major shortcoming of PuTTY is that it does not have integrated file transfers in the client itself. Instead, file transfers have to be done via the command line. This is too complicated for most users. Tectia SSH has had them since Other SSH clients. Using the terminal on Windows. PuTTY user manual. Note that use of SSH1 is not recommended for security reasons.
Practically all devices support SSH2 these days. File transfers only using a separate command-line programs.Linux Tutorial for Beginners - 15 - SSH Key Authentication
No integrated file transfer support. No scripting support, but can be used together with WinSCP. The main feature of the product is the terminal window. It has good terminal emulation, good configurability, and good support for different cryptographic algorithms.
The user interface does not include an integrated file transfer client. These can be used for file transfers. However, most non-technical users are not willing to use a command line. Tectia SSHfor example, has offered fully integrated file transfer capability since Having two software packages, switching between them to do operations, and managing profiles and logins for both is extra trouble. The keys are stored in. The PuTTYgen tool can be used for generating new keys and converting between.
It is common for hackers and malware to collect SSH keys when penetrating an organization. This happened, for example, in the infamous Sony breach. Managing SSH keys properly is important. PuTTY grew out of a telnet client. It still supports the telnet protocol. However, very few devices use telnet these days. Its use is not recommended for security reasons. Telnet sends all user names and passwords in the clear. It is very easy to listen to network traffic and steal user names and passwords from telnet traffic.
