Logging in with a fob-style hardware token
You can log in to IBM® OpenSSH with a valid PIN. This use case requires a fob-style hardware token.
Perform the following steps:
Open an OpenSSH utility connection to the z/OS® system. Consider the following examples:
scp files.txt user-name@your-host:/home/user-nameYou are prompted for the password.
- Get the 6- to 8-digit token code displayed by the SecurID token.
- Enter your PIN followed by the 6- to 8-digit token code displayed by the SecurID token in the password field. For example, if your PIN is 4321 and your token code is 456789, enter 4321456789 in the password field.
If successful, the OpenSSH command succeeds.
