Manage SSH Fingerprints

You can accept or reject SSH fingerprints. When BeyondInsight for Unix & Linux connects to a host, fingerprints are retrieved. Communication is not established with the host until a fingerprint is accepted.

A fingerprint can be in one of the following states:

  • Unknown: The fingerprint must be reviewed.
  • Allowed: The fingerprint passed review.
  • Denied: The fingerprint was rejected, and the host is not trusted.

To manage SSH fingerprints:

  1. From the menu, select Hosts > SSH Fingerprints.
  2. Click a fingerprint to open Fingerprint Details.
  3. Click Allow to trust the fingerprint or Deny to reject it.
