Topic "How to use Host Certificate?"

Author Message



Our servers are configured to use certificate. This certificate signed by a Certificate Authority.
On our client machine we added "@cert-authority ....." into ~/.ssh/known_hosts that specifies the public key that we should use to check the certificate that our hosts will give us during login

When user visit the SSH server for the first time from his client, user should not be asked whether user trust the remote host. This is because the host has presented its host certificate to user, signed by the certificate authority.

How can I use this feature in OpenSSH for my WinSCP client's?
Sorry, my English isn’t so good.

Using WinSCP 5.5.6 on Windows XP.

WinSCP does not support this. Actually, WinSCP uses SSH implementation from PuTTY project.

May I advise you to approach PuTTY team with this requirement/suggestion?

Please Cc me if you do.
