SSH authentication via Fingerprint scanning over network (TLS Sockets).
Version: 3.0
Added: 27-11-2018
Updated: 31-12-2018

This Android app stores your SSH key phrase and sends it to your PC securely via the LAN when an authorized fingerprint is detected by the Android fingerprint scanner.

  • The PC must run Linux and have FiSSH desktop installed - see here
  • The PC app then returns the received passphrase to OpenSSH and the standard ssh binary completes the login process.
  • It is important to note that none of the FiSSH apps have access to private key file and that FiSSH uses TLS sockets with certificate validation to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks!
