Ubuntu :: Use Openssl Public And Private Keys So Only A Host With The Public Key Could Access / Decrypt The Filesharing

Aug 2, 2011

I'm trying to write a p2p file sharing program using python's built-in libraries. Everything is going well. The only thing is that i'd like to be able to use openssl public and private keys so only a host with the public key could access/decrypt the filesharing. I've gotten these libraries (httplib, basehttpserver, ssl, os) to work using just a pem file containing both the public and private keys but no success with them seperately. Can someone point me in the right direction or offer an alternative? PS, the goal of the project is to create an anonymous, decentralized, secure file sharing program. I want to be able to upload this to sourceforge so everyone can use it, if that's any incentive

I'm trying to set up my laptop to ssh into my home server, but I'm trying to find how to generate the public/private keys. I was able to do it in Slack 12.2 by just running ssh-keygen, but that command is not in 13.x.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup The Necessary Public/private Keys To Use In FileZilla?

Jan 26, 2010

I installed OpenSSH via tasksel and am using Webmin for administration. I'd like to be able to SSH externally and want to setup the necessary public/private keys to use in FileZilla. In Webmin, under Servers > SSH Server I can click 'Host Keys' and see an RSA key. Is this the public or private key for my server? Do I need to copy this into a text file to import it into FileZilla on my remote PC (that I want to connect from)? Is that all that needs to be done (aside from opening the port on my router/firewall)? Or, is there an automated way to set this up via Webmin?

Ubuntu Security :: Public / Private Keys On Multiple Servers?

Mar 26, 2010

At the moment we have one SSH server with the private key being on a usb flash drive, and the public key being on the server in authorized_keys2. Now that three more servers are coming online, should we generate new keys, so we have muliple private and public keys (one pair for each server), or use the same two keys to access all the servers

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.3 - SSH Connections Using Public / Private Keys Rejected

Aug 10, 2010

My ISP has for a long time had a broken forward/reverese DNS so that my ADSL connection with static IP address resolves to a completely different IP address on a reverse query. This has not been a problem until I upgraded a remote server from 10.3 to 11.3 last weekend and now ssh connections from my ADSL connection to it using public/private keys are being rejected with the following message in /var/log/messages (IP addresses changed):
Aug 10 12:00:32 penguin1 sshd[1270]: Address maps to 83-175-246-243.static.dsl.aupex.com, but this does not map back to the address - Possible Break in Attempt!

But if I log in interactively with username & password, the connection succeeds. I've changed the StrictModes setting in sshd_config to 'no' but this hasn't resolved the problem. Obviously something in 11.3 is being stricter about this IP mismatch than it was in 10.2 (and no, the server is not using a firewall). There must be something I can change to make sshd more permissive? I've tried before to get my ISP to fix their problem but no luck. This needs to be sorted as a server at my home (which does not run SuSE) retrieves backups from the remote OpenSuSE 11.3 server every night using scp and these are now failing.

Networking :: QEMU: Tap Host: Windows 2003 Server - Guest: Ubuntu 9.04 - No Ip Address And Can't Access Public

Oct 28, 2010

host is windows 2003 server 64-bit
guest is ubuntu 9.04 server 64bit
Qemu : 0.11.1
Qemu manager: 7.0

from Qemu manager, if network card is using User Networking, it's a NAT and I can see that Guest Ubuntu has an ip address and is able to access the internet. However, as Guest ubuntu is running server so I want to do use Tap networking and I assue with Tap, the Guest ubuntu will get an ip address which is in the same subnet as host machine by dhcp. so from Qemu Manager 7.0, I changed Network card to be:

Vlan Number =0
VLAN Type: Tap Networking
Mac address: tap0's mac address from host
TAP Network Adpator: Tap0

Note that tap0 was created by openvpn. and then fired Ubuntu guest, ifconfig shows no ip address on eth0 (which has the same mac address as Tap0) so the guest Ubuntu has no ip address and can't access public.

Ubuntu :: Disable Password-Authentication Using Public / Private Key With Ssh

Mar 27, 2010

So after tinkering for a while, I was able to configure ssh for private/public key authentication and disabled Password-Authentication. In the past I had some issues with people brute force trying passwords/usernames so I want to avoid this, but I need some form of secure FTP that now doesn't work due to the aforementioned setting.

Ubuntu Networking :: Public IP Vs Private IP For DHCP Server?

Feb 12, 2011

My Ubuntu server is now providing routing duties to my network, but I'm having trouble opening ports to my network. I have a DynDNS account, so the IP is always current, but I can't ping even my IP directly.

My network map looks like

Internet > SpeedTouch DSL modem with DHCP > eth1 > Ubuntu > eth0 > LAN

With the modem providing a 192.168.1.xx IP to eth1, I can browse fine. The default gateway is my modem. I switched to the public IP of the modem so I could use iptables for firewall duties, but I was locked out of the internet. No gateway was set when I did that, but eth1 received the public IP of my modem.

How can I use the public IP assigned to eth1?

General :: Github Private/public SSH Key Authentication?

Jan 28, 2011

I created a private/public pair. I put the public on github.But I can never push to github.Every time, it says public denied. In order to push, I need to do this:eval ssh-agentssh-add ~/.ssh/github_dsaThis is driving me nuts that I have to do this every time. So, I just put it in my ~/.bashrc file. I feel like that's a hack. Is this normal?

Networking :: SSH Setup - Public / Private Key Authentication?

May 7, 2010

After years with Linux and using ssh on a daily basis I have to admit I've never setup public/private key authentication and I've never run passwordless logon to ssh. It's not that I've never tried, I have - I've just never got it working. That to me is an almost alien concept as I am a tinkerer at heart and rarely stop until something is working the way I'd like it to. I get the principle of what's going on but I've always had a mental block about it.

General :: Configure Ssh To Stop Requiring Public/private Key Auth?

Dec 29, 2009

I configured ssh on one of my servers to require public/private key authentication and deny access to login requests not using a public/private key. Now I need to unconfigure that,but I can't remember how I did it. I've looked through ssh_config and sshd_config, and nothing rings a bell. Googling only tells me how to enable public/private key authentication, not how to require it or stop requiring it.

General :: Mv: Cannot Stat `/public/public/clamscans/*.txt': No Such File Or Directory

I run the following file with the >log.log redirector and it does not capture errors.

echo ************************BEGIN LOG******************************

The following errors show up when I run from the file from the term window, but are not written to log.log:

tar: /public/public/clamscans/*.txt: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
mv: cannot stat `/public/public/clamscans/*.txt': No such file or directory

I know with windows you can add the 2>&1 to capture error data. Is there such a thing for Linux?

Networking :: SSH Chaining (tunnelling) With Public Keys

Sep 30, 2010

I've been searching for a while in forums about the issue I'm facing but couldn't find anything clear, or at least my net search skills are pretty lame. I'm facing a problem with prompted user password in a SSH chain connection when using authorized_keys.

I have: (1) Client - (2) Server - (3) Testing machine (testing machine is connect to Server via usb network)I've created keys for Client and Server, and updated authorized_keys in host machines with the key values: Testing machine has Server public key, and Server has Client public key.Until now everything is fine, if I try to connect via ssh the user password prompt is not shown since public key is found in authorized_keys.

For example: from Client: Code: ssh server Works fine, no password prompt.from Server: Code: ssh testing_machine Works fine, no password prompt.But if try to do that from Client only: from Client: Code: client:$ ssh server Works fine, no password prompt.from Client: Code: server:$ ssh testing_machine Asks for password.Bellow the verbose output from previous ssh command:

Code: ssh -v root(at)
OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009

Software :: Logging Into Server Using Public Keys?

Mar 12, 2011

I've got a slight issue with logging into my server using public keys.

It was working fine, until I had to rebuild my desktop machine. I had the key copied to the server, and passwordless logins where fine.

However now I have rebuilt my desktop, I cant get to the login.

So heres whats happend.

Rebuilt id_rsa.pub, server will not allow login. Remove id_rsa.pub and the server allows password based login.

On the server, removed authorized_keys and known_hosts. makes no difference. Server still disallows keyfile, but will allow password when id_rsa is not present on the client.

Heres a -v of the login chat with keyfile

michael@eve:~$ ssh -v server
OpenSSH_5.5p1 Debian-6, OpenSSL 0.9.8o 01 Jun 2010
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug1: Connecting to server [ser.ver.ip] port 22.


So, is there anyway of getting the server to forget the previous keys, it is remembering, As previousily said, I have completly removed the contents of ~/.ssh/ on both the clients and the server.
