SSH using Public & Private Key

Answered Question
Dec 26th, 2008

Hi all,

I have the switch configured for SSH and it is working good. I know how to configure SSH in router using crypto command. The new requirement araised now. My organisation has created a pair of key - PULIC KEY & PRIVATE KEY common to the company using some mechanism. The idea is the PUBLIC KEY will be installed in the devices like Unix, Linux Servers. so the staff who is owing the PRIVATE KEY is only be allowed to access the device. I am trying to add / install / import the PUBLIC KEY into the Switch in similar fashion. But i am not getting clue how to go ahead. Please guide me how to import the PUBLIC KEY into the Switch, so that who ever is having the PRIVATE KEY is only allowed to login to the device.

This feature is NOT supported on Cisco IOS or

ASA. If you want to do something like this,

I suggest you look at other vendors such

as Nokia/Checkpoint, F5 or Juniper.
