sss_ssh_authorizedkeys [options] USER


sss_ssh_authorizedkeys acquires SSH public keys for user USER and outputs them in OpenSSH authorized_keys format (see the “AUTHORIZED_KEYS FILE FORMAT” section of sshd(8) for more information).

sshd(8) can be configured to use sss_ssh_authorizedkeys for public key user authentication if it is compiled with support for “AuthorizedKeysCommand” option. Please refer to the sshd_config(5) man page for more details about this option.

If “AuthorizedKeysCommand” is supported, sshd(8) can be configured to use it by putting the following directives in sshd_config(5):

  AuthorizedKeysCommand /usr/bin/sss_ssh_authorizedkeys
  AuthorizedKeysCommandUser nobody
