A year or so ago i wrote how to create PEM file and login to your server with it to take advantage of disabling password based logins.
Objective: To disable password based logins and login only using key based authentication. Will create a pem file which will be used to access the server. OS used is CentOS 7 64bit.
There are ways to mount the server via SSH, the one which is common is via FTP application by SFTP protocol. Which is ok so far.
Today i will show you how to install and configure SSH on your Linux sever machine. We need OpenSSH server to install 1st to work on SSH. The process of installation for different distros have different approach.
