    sshd: requiring public key *and* interactive password?


    Hi all,

    Can sshd be configured to require both public key and interactive pasword? Or can two instances of sshd on the same server be paired to do this two-layer login? Do you guys agree that this can be somewhat more secure?

    Sort of. Requiring both pubkey authentication and password authentication is not possible that I'm aware of.

    BUT you can create your pubkeys with passphrases. That may be what you're looking for.
