I’ve got a new Unix server up at RackSpace and I need to get my users some accounts on it. How do I go about doing that? I could copy and paste each of their passwords… well, I guess really I should have them come type their passwords, shouldn’t I? Actually, I know that public key authentication is more secure and robust than password-based. I’m going to go with that. Let’s make the assumption that each of the users that I want to give access to this machine have public/private key pairs already setup. Here are some basic notes for that procedure to get you started.
