This tutorial illustrates how users can employ PrivX's passwordless SSH and RDP access.

Key Concepts

Steps

  1. Our example user chris.hall logs in to PrivX.


  2. This PrivX instance has MFA active, so Chris checks the pin code from his Google Authenticator app.


  3. Chris has the roles RDP user and SSH user. These roles are set up to allow him passwordless RDP and SSH access on certain target hosts.


  4. To demonstrate role ssh user, Chris navigates to Connections, lists his available SSH hosts and clicks PrivXDemo Linux-3.


  5. On the target host, he is granted passwordless SSH access as user ubuntu.


  6. To demonstrate role rdp user, he lists his available SSH hosts and clicks Administrator @ PrivXDemo Windows AD.

  7. On the target host, he is granted passwordless RDP access as user Administrator.
