##Overview

The module makes it possible to install a ssh server and/or client and to add authorized ssh keys to existing users.

##Setup

###What attachmentgenie/ssh affects

  • ssh server
  • ssh client
  • add authorized ssh keys to existing users.

###Beginning with attachmentgenie/ssh

The ssh::client class installs the ssh client:

class { 'ssh::client': }

The ssh::server class installs and configures the sshd:

class { 'ssh::server':
  password_authentication => 'yes',
}

##Usage

You can specify the port the sshd should listen to by including the class with this special syntax:

class { 'ssh::server':
  port => 20009,
}

You can also restrict access for only certain users:

class { 'ssh::server':
  allowed_users => ['attachmentgenie', 'manager'],
}

And you can permit root logins (not recommended):

class { 'ssh::server':
  permit_root_login => 'yes',
}

To permit root logins could be a serious security issue. In most cases you should use something like sudo instead.

You can use ssh::user to add an authorized ssh key to an existing user for effortless authentication with ssh:

ssh::user { 'attachmentgenie':
  key     => 'a8a7dgf7ad8j13g',
  comment => 'laptop',
}

ssh::user { 'laptop':
  key  => 'a8a7dgf7ad8j13g',
  user => 'attachmentgenie',
}
