Wrong filename in ssh manpage
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:23 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...
