Terastation private/public key authentication, secure NFS
« on: June 11, 2010, 06:16:47 am »

One of my colleagues would like to backup his Linux machine onto the Terastation. Keeping the login and password in clear text in the backup shell script is bad practice. It would be great if each user account could be linked to a public key to allow more convenient and secure login. Also if some form of secure NFS was available it would make it easier for Linux users to mount Terastation folders locally on their workstations and backup their data.
