configure key-based authentication

[ Edited ]


I'm having difficulties configuring key-based authentication to ICX-6450. I've created keys and imported those to the switch, configured ssh and configured radius. Authentication methods are: Password, Public-key, Interactive.


What I want to have

- clients log in w/ keys

- users are defined in radius (now, this works)


The problem is that what ever I do the client still requests for the password. The question is what actually you have to do in order to have this working?

Re: configure key-based authentication

Figured it out. Manual is missing one crucial instruction: the public key MUST be converted to IETF SecSH -format (RFC4716).


ssh-keygen -e > ./
