Prototype security software blocks DDoS attacks

by Tim Greene, Network World Security researchers show lightweight, host-based access-control scheme that dumps attack packets without overwhelming memory, CPU.Researchers have come up with host-based security software that blocks distributed denial-of-service attacks without swamping the memory and CPU of the host machines.The filtering, called identity-based privacy-protected access control (IPCAF), can also prevent [...]

SSH-KEYSIGN(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					    SSH-KEYSIGN(8)

NAME
ssh-keysign -- ssh helper program for host-based authentication SYNOPSIS
ssh-keysign DESCRIPTION
ssh-keysign is used by ssh(1) to access the local host keys and generate the digital signature required during host-based authentication with SSH protocol version 2. ssh-keysign is disabled by default and can only be enabled in the global client configuration file /etc/ssh/ssh_config by setting EnableSSHKeysign to ``yes''. ssh-keysign is not intended to be invoked by the user, but from ssh(1). See ssh(1) and sshd(8) for more information about host-based authen- tication. FILES
/etc/ssh/ssh_config Controls whether ssh-keysign is enabled. /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key, /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key These files contain the private parts of the host keys used to generate the digital signature. They should be owned by root, read- able only by root, and not accessible to others. Since they are readable only by root, ssh-keysign must be set-uid root if host- based authentication is used. SEE ALSO
ssh(1), ssh-keygen(1), ssh_config(5), sshd(8) HISTORY
ssh-keysign first appeared in OpenBSD 3.2. AUTHORS
