How does that work on the console, exactly? How do you
feed your public key into getty(8)? I don't think that's
While I agree with Matt in general (i.e. disallow remote
logins with passwords), you still have to use passwords
for locally logging in at the console. I think Matt just
forgot to add the word "remote" to his sentence. This
thread is about ssh anyway.
