Ubuntu Security :: Disable Tunneled Clear Text Passwords

Nov 13, 2010

The ubuntu installation came with my ubuntu (it does not matter which version etc.) Contains sshd_config file with this interesting lines:
# Change to no to disable tunneled clear text passwords
#PasswordAuthentication yes

The same lines are seen in many Ubuntu-related internet pages. This is quite surprising to see.
This seem to contradict to the fact that ssh was created specially to provide authentication (with passwords, of couse) but without sending them by internet as clear text like previous programs did. But I could not find any clear confirmations of that neither in Kubuntu-related documents no anywhere else. I put below fragment of a document from RedHat. This seem to imply that if one will use two "yes", the passwords will be passed in encripted form (and this is what is recommended by RedHat). Is that true? Is this true for Ubuntu too? Is the quoted line from sshd_config wrong? Or incomplete?

[URL] RSAAuthentication yes
The option RSAAuthentication specifies whether to try RSA authentication. This option must be set to yes for better security in your sessions. RSA use public and private key pairs created with the ssh-keygen1utility for authentication purposes.
PasswordAuthentication yes
The option PasswordAuthentication specifies whether we should use password-based authentication. For strong security, this option must always be set to yes.

General :: SSH And Stop Password Being Shown In Clear Text?

Jan 6, 2011

I have a headless server running Centos and I often login in remotely to administer it. I have passwordless login and sometimes run commands remotely via ssh from a client machine. I've tried to shut the server remotely but have come across a small problem. Here is the output of the command I use to shutdown :Code:unclec@linux-desktop $ ssh centos 'sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now 'PASSWORD : 123ABCAs passwordless login is set up I do not need to enter a password to ssh BUT as I am running sudo on the server I am asked to enter my centos unclec password and this is shown in clear text on my local machine terminal. Is there a way to prevent this or should I edit the sudoers file on centos so it does not ask me to enter the password when "sudoing" ?

General :: Importing User Accounts/passwords From Another Machine?

Jun 10, 2010

I have couple of users in one machine. I can access the /etc/passwd,/etc/shadow and /etc/group files in this box. I have another box. I want to create some user accounts in the second box by just looking in the passwd, shadow and group files in the first box. I would just copy over the corresponding lines into the corresponding for whichever accounts I want to create as new and also change the lines for which I want to update the account information. Is this possible and will also the passwords work fine? Please also let me know there is any good tool for automatically doing this kind of stuff. Both the boxes that I have are Ubuntu machines though one is running Ubuntu 8.04 and the other is 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Me Menu Text Box Does Not Auto-Clear

Apr 18, 2011

I've been meaning to ask about this since Ubuntu 10.10 launched. How come clicking the "Post message..." text box in the Me Menu doesn't auto-clear the text? You have to highlight the text, press Backspace and then post your message. Not very nice or intuitive. No biggie, just surprised it wasn't patched by someone within a day or two of launch as these things often are!

Programming :: BASH Scripting: Hide Plain Text Passwords

Jun 15, 2010

I was wondering if there is way to hide passwords in bash scripts. For example: I have to write a script to export a full ldap structure, and I'm using the ldapsearch -y passwordfile, where password file is a plain text file that contains the password. Is there a way to hide the password from that file?

I was thinking to remove the r attribute from the file and before the script is lunched to put the attribute back, but is not a good solution, the same with immutable attribute.

General :: Can't Make Clear On Most Manpages - Can't Simply Usebzip2 File?

Feb 5, 2010

What they don't make clear on most manpages is that you can't simply usebzip2 that gives bzip2 free rein to include the original extension in the filename. You must use the -c tag (and better than that, the -c and -k tags, the latter of which leaves the original file untouched post-compression), then -if you wish- the level of compression to apply to a file (in the range of 1-9, with 1 being next-to-no compression and 9 the highest level of compression), followed by the filename/s to compress, then after a single space, a right-hand carat (">"), then another single space and the name you want to give the compressed bzip2 file, remembering to add the extension ".bzip2" (no quotes) to your filename.

Sounds pretty obvious, doesn't it? Well, I thought so too once I read a particular manual page and reasoned it out. Then I remembered the 15 or so minutes it took me to Google myself to that manpage, and I decided it was good Net citizenship to put up a little step-by-step like this one on an appropriate forum on which I was already a registered member.

It isn't just the C++ heads or the Python jockeys who need things broken down to their simplest bits for them from time to time. Newbies and near-newbies do, too. I took it as read that was the reason for this subforum, so here I went.

Ubuntu :: Samba Forgets User Passwords?

May 10, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 x64 and I've had some problems with samba (cifs/windows file sharing). It seems like samba is forgetting user passwords, so on every reboot I have to add a password for the user that needs access: sudo smbpasswd -a tietze

I've tried restarting samba (sudo service sbmd restart), but it does not work. I have to add a new password for the user with the command above.

I tried to google a bit for a solution, but only found the following thread with a problem that seems related: [other] Samba forgets user
