    question about secure shell encryption and deamon


    HI.
    two quick questions.
    a) is ~/.ssh/known_hosts or ~/.ssh/authorized_keys where cached secure shell encryption keys from other systems that the user has contacted in the past are stored?

    b) what file must I edit to configure the settings used by the secure shell daemon ?
    Thanks

    the public key of a remote, trusted user is stored in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys or ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2. it can be copied there by the use of the very handy script ssh-copy-id, which comes with the openssh package.

    b) what file must I edit to configure the settings used by the secure shell daemon ?
    Not sure what you mean by this, but you can set up a bunch of client-side configurations in the files ~/.ssh/config and /etc/ssh/ssh_config, and on the server-side in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.
