I've already seen that document on two-factor authentication, it doesn't apply at all.|
there's too much detail in it about Wikid, which I'm not using (and not sure what it is).
it's too specific.
All I'm looking for is a nice simple document that will tell me how to add radius authentication to SSH.
that's it. no other fancy things. something that will apply to current versions of linux
I use Suse, so many of the redhat specific things don't work very well.
