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 use Kerberos for authentication, and does not support Public Key or RSA authentication for logging in via SSH. All users are required to enter their UMICH password along with Duo two-factor authentication (2FA).

For instructions on connecting, refer to our knowledge base article on SSH.
