Projects / ssh-smart


ssh-smart is a basic proof-of-concept implementation of ssh authentication via smartcard. The smartcard which is used to store the ssh identity is a memory card (I2C 16KBIT/2048 bytes). ssh-smart uses multiple Perl scripts and the smartcard program to establish communication with the reader and the memory card. It has only been tested with the Towitoko chip drive micro, but it could work with other card reader terminal drivers using the CT-API library. The project is in an early stage of development and a lot has to be done before it can be considered a reliable solution to store an ssh identity in a secure way.
