NCM - Support for SSH Key ased authentication

NCM - Support for SSH Key ased authentication

We have had a few clients request that we use SSH Key based authentication against their devices and I didn't see an already existing Feature Request for this so here it is.

The library shipped with solarwinds wodSSH help - Getting Started in ASP  completely supports ssh key authentication.  Its a trivial schema change to enable this.

PLEASE PLEASE PELASE PLEASE.  WE have turned off all password auth - which means no NCM functionality.   do it.  Do THIS!   Be smart.  Be trendy.  Show everyone you're future driven!  Passwords are sooo 2005.

The request has been out there for years it seems.  This is a necessity in any secure environment, especially the government space.  Please bump this up the list.  We have not been able to use NCM for years now because it's not supported and passwords are a no no.

It already exists in SAM, so we know it can be done

SOOO true

BTW, folks, if you are reading this and NOT upvoting it you are missing some pretty big security holes in your world.    Please upvote.

The Product manager said he'd talk to me about this, but hasnt yet.  that was three months ago.

"Status change to open for voting? " 

Listen.  Seriously.  All y'all.  If your current idea is to continue to use password you are beggin' and I mean beggin' for something evil to com forth.

Key and cert based auth are 2015.  Passwords are 1995.   and here it is 2020.  And solarwinds is still 1995 and asking you, the very smart people of the IT world, to vote on if you think your tech should be run 1995 style or not.

Everytime I hear telnet, snmp v1,2, password, here or in any place, I cringe.  You know not how easy the right placed comprimise is....  be afraid.
