Stored Passwords

You can store target-user passwords in PrivX, so PrivX users can connect to those target users without having to provide the password. The steps for enabling this authentication method are:

  1. For SSH only: Configure the target-host SSH server to allow password authentication. Note that allowing keyboard-interactive authentication does not enable using stored passwords in PrivX.

  2. Store the target-user passwords in PrivX:

    1. On the Administration→Hosts page, Edit the target host on which the target user is.

    2. Under the Accounts section, provide the Password for the target user(s). If not done already, also specify the Roles that may access the target user(s).

    3. Click Save to apply the changes.

    Connections to the target user should no longer prompt for password.
