SSH Key Management Challenges and Requirements

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientific


SSH (Secure Shell) uses public keys for authenticating servers and users. This paper summarizes progress in SSH key management so far, highlights outstanding problems, and presents requirements for a long-term solution. Proposals are solicited from the research community to address the issue. The problem is of high practical importance, as most of our critical Internet infrastructure, cloud services, and open source software development is protected using these keys.
