ssh: Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive)


I'm using linux system I created a ssh key on local directory $ ssh-keygen -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa

and then uploaded the public key to planetLab system

then I tried to log in a PlanetLab node using: ssh -v<br /> the debug information is as follows:

OpenSSH_5.8p2, OpenSSL 1.0.0j-fips 10 May 2012 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to openlab01.pl.sophia.inria.fr [] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_rsa type 1 debug1: identity file /user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_5.5 debug1: match: OpenSSH_5.5 pat OpenSSH* debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.8 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<1024<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY debug1: Server host key: RSA 3b:a4:2a:ec:89:d0:7b:d7:b2:08:fe:ca:0d:24:ae:20 debug1: Host 'openlab01.pl.sophia.inria.fr' is known and matches the RSA host key. debug1: Found key in /user/wgong/home/.ssh/known_hosts:10 debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received debug1: Roaming not allowed by server debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Offering RSA public key: /user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive debug1: Trying private key: /user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: Next authentication method: keyboard-interactive debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive debug1: No more authentication methods to try.

how to deal with this problem? thanks!

I notice a problem, previously, our group is tika now it is changed to uslin however, even if I deleted the previous keys and use ssh-keygen to generate new keys, the group is still as below:

-rw------- 1 wgong tika 1766 Mar 6 19:06 id_rsa -rw-r--r-- 1 wgong tika 394 Mar 6 19:06 id_rsa.pub -rw-r--r-- 1 wgong uslin 3987 Mar 6 18:11 known_hosts

is this the problem? how to fix it? thanks!


Make sure your ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the server contains your publik key. Also, check this file's permissions - if permissions are too lax, you won't be able to log in:

chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys chmod 700 ~/.ssh/ chmod 700 ~

Yes, even your home directory's permissions may make logging in with the key impossible.
