Why must I enter my password every time I connect to the Linux Login Service? Can I use Public Key authentication?

The CAEN Linux Login Service does not support Public Key or RSA authentication for logging in via SSH. When connecting from on-campus, users are required to enter their Kerberos password. From off-campus, Duo two-factor authentication is required.

For information on connecting from both on-campus and off-campus, refer to our knowledge base article on SSH.
