Fixed In Version: is6
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Previously, only user name and password authentication was supported for host installation and upgrade. With this update, public key authentication is now supported. This feature provides a higher level of security, streamlines subsequent authentication, and reduces the possibility of man-in-the-middle attacks by displaying and retaining the SSH public key fingerprint of remote hosts.

Description Alon Bar-Lev 2013-05-12 07:14:34 UTC
Currently we use user/password authentication for host-deploy, ovirt-node upgrade.

We use public key authentication for ovirt-node approval.

I would like we support both user password and public key authentication.

Suggested implementation:


Host: _______________
 <x> Password: _____________
 < > Public key
     Key: _______read only text of public key_____________


Host: ______readonly_________
 < > Password: _____________
 <x> Public key
     Key: _______read only text of public key_____________
