libssh - How to dynamically allow users in OpenSSH?

I want to be able to block or allow users based on the result of an external script using OpenSSH. I see that libssh has support for callbacks, but after reading the OpenSSH man pages I cannot find anywhere that this functionality is handed to the user.For example, I'd like to be able to maintain either a file or even an API that contains a username blacklist or whitelist, and have OpenSSH consult these lists during the authentication process.Ideas I've had so far, and why they are insufficient:Make use of sshd_config: AllowUsers. This is a sta...Read more

beagleboneblack - Start OpenSSH sshd automatically on the BeagleBone Black

Does anybody know how to start sshd automatically on the BeagleBone Black ? I've replaced dropbear with OpenSSH. The standard systemctl enable sshd doesn't work, but strangely systemctl start sshd does. I'm quite new to systems with systemd replacing init, so hopefully I'm not just missing something trivial / simple. The BeagleBone Black in question is running Angstrom Linux and is using the opkg package manager. OpenSSH was installed with opkg install openssh. When I run systemctl enable sshd@.service, I get the following message:The unit file...Read more

GSS authentication for openssh client (Scientific Linux)

The task in hand is to look for an authentication mechanism from Linuix client (Scietific Linux 6.1) to a HyperV Server. I'm using openwsman to establish the connection; it seems openwsman does not support kerbose/gssapi as openssl/openssh internally used does not support the protocol. Googling about GSS and openssh support, I was able to find a git project maintained by Simon Wilkinson ( and also a webpage maintaining the patches against openssh releases ( more

logs - Where does openssh-server get the "Last Login" information from?

Where does openssh-server get the "Last Login" information from?I recently logged in remotely from a Windows machine using SSH Secure Shell 3.2.9 and the reported last login was from a network location I do not recognize. I then checked auth.log (more specifically, auth.log.1) and found no log entries pertaining to the reported network location. I usually remote in via VPN so I know the IP of the computer logged-in changes. However, it typically takes the form of an IP address where as this particular attempt was recorded as unknownComputerName...Read more
