Description Alexander Larsson 2002-08-09 11:24:03 EDT
The protocol 2 parts of the ssh manpage says:
 The server checks whether the matching public key is listed in
 $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys and grants access if both the key is found and
 the signature is correct. 

This is not correct. It checks for authorized_keys2.

I just checked the behavior of openssh*3.4p1-1 from Limbo2, and for protocol 2
(I didn't try protocol 1) it actually looks at both authorized_keys and

NOTABUG - authorized_keys2 is deprecated and has not been mentioned since
v2.9.9p1. It is still checked for backwards compatibility

Hmmm... this bug is still open, and in "NEW" limbo...
