How to Conceive SSH Key Management Security for Secured and Legitimate Access of the Command Cell in Remote Systems

SSH (Secure Shell) is a technology that allows an entity on one system to securely and legitimately access the command shell of a remote system.

This white paper provides details on the entire process - from TLS handshake protocol through to SSH Key Management Interoperability protocol and how protecting SSH keys can be achieved by use of HSMs.

Take a closer look at:

  • How SSH is implemented on top of transport-layer security (TLS) and how TLS works

  • How man in the middle attacks are an ultimate risk and why SSH key management is paramount to information security and used to protect TLS channels

  • Why SSH key managers store their keys within a NIST FIPS 140-2 HSM

Find out about the risks of unmanaged keys and best practices for SSH key management by utilizing Utimaco HSMs.
