SSH and Public Key Authentication

Public key authentication allows you to prove your identity to the physics unix machines–and thus login–without the use of your account password.

Managed Systems

Public and private key pairs are already available for all users on department unix machines. As a result repeated password entry is unnecessary when connecting to other managed machines. Additionally, the same functionality can be configured when using department windows machines to SSH into unix machines.
