2FA for SSH login 👌
@JRLarsen Unfortunately the library is made by Google, but still useful: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-multi-factor-authentication-for-ssh-on-ubuntu-18-04
@brandon with 2FA I'd even feel comfortable enough to give SSH a subdomain so I don't leave traces of my IP on any computer I remote from
@brandon lmao. I was remote in from an AWS server on my browser then I suddenly had a huge spike of work and while I was doing that, the AWS page froze and I ended up locking myself out of my home server xP
@brandon Well I toyed with it more because it turned out for the Password and Verification Code, it was a different token for both of those instead of my password and a token
So the other day I locked myself out from even my trusted devices. lol
I've just been too lazy to fix it yet cause the services I use on it are all running fine. lol
@brandon isn't a public key with passphrase 2FA? It requires something you have (your private key) and something you know (the passphrase)
@arielcostas Having an auth code being needed to be typed in addition would mean that an attacker, even with a keylogger, would have a very small time frame to be able to sniff and use your credentials, I believe.
