SunSSH and OpenSSL Enhancements in OpenSolaris within 01/2008-06/2009

A presentation written in July 2009, covering all major enhancements we integrated into SunSSH and with OpenSSL within a period of 01/2008-06/2009. The presentation slides are here.

Hello,

I am trying to determine if SunSSH (SSH-2.0-Sun_SSH_1.1.2)on a Solaris 10 box is capable of using the following keyword and argument (this PasswordPrompt keyword comes directly from OpenSSH implementations).

# PasswordPrompt "%U@%H's password: "

Regards,
Scott

Scott, I think that's an option in SSH.com (Tectia). OpenSSH does not use it, and neither SunSSH.

Ok, I searched the web and read that too.

What I'm interested about is Sun Solaris and a difference in the behavior of SSH between SunSSH and OpenSSH. Specifically once you're challenged with password.

In SunSSH you see the following -

Password:

With OpenSSH installed on Sun Solaris 10, you might see -

User@Host's password:

Notice there is a case difference with "password too.

Thanks,
Scott

"Password" prompt on Solaris suggests that the keyboard-interactive auth method is used. With the password auth method, it uses the user@host form:

$ ssh -o PreferredAuthentications=password localhost
janp@localhost's password:

And to control the authentication methods that is done by editing the system's SSH2_CONFIG. file and removing keyboard-interactive?

If we dont want to affect a global change, can the keyboard-interactive method be removed by the users SSH2_CONFIG. file?

Sorry but I do not have access to the Sun box. I am T/S from a VMS host using /debug=6

Thanks for your help Jan.

Hi Jan,

Are there any plans to implement the following:
