Keys, Tunnels, VPN, and Automation

Use of OpenSSH and PuTTY clients with the OpenSSH server for authentication, tunnels, VPNs, and automation.

A surprising number of systems administrators use SSH as a replacement for telnet: run the client, type in a username and password, and they're in. While you can find all kinds of tutorials on more advanced features, many of them are obsolete or inapplicable to modern SSH. This tutorial takes junior system administrators through more advanced SSH features, including: use of keys for authentication, port forwarding, creating VPNs, and using SSH for automation, using both OpenSSH and PuTTY clients.

Attendees who bring their preferred SSH client and have access to a recent OpenSSH server will leave with working public-key authentication.
