Can the Pix sshd use ssh keys to authenticate users instead of passwds?

Hello there;

For Pix management, curious whether the Pix can do authentication using ssh keys. Most sshd's allow you to authenticate without entering passwords using the ssh public/private key exchange. I'm hoping that the Pix ssh implementation should be able to do this as well?

Thanks.

Currently no, although it has been discussed for both the PIX and IOS (which also doesn't currently support it). Not sure if or when it'll be implemented, but as I said, at the moment you have to enter a userid/password.
