    ssh public key authentication with oracle directory server

    Ghilteras

      Hi guys, so I have an oracle directory server installed on a red hat 5.6.

       

      As I create users using the web ui I'd like to have ssh use them for authentication instead of the local /etc/passwd (and I can do that configuring pam), but since the authentication happens via public key I'd like to add their pubkey directly to LDAP

       

      Normally I could add the key manually on their home directory by placing the pubkey in the .ssh/authorized_keys, but we are talking about hundreds of users. I noticed I have 2 fields in the user menu:

       

      userCertificate:

      userPKCS12:


      can I use one of those 2 fields for the ssh public keys or expand/add schemas in a way that it can handle them?


      Thanks

      cheers
