4.7 User authentication methods

The user authentication protocol is implemented as separate client and server service modules. The following standard authentication methods are supported by the modules provided with libassh:

The various methods can be disabled in build configuration and at run time.

Multi-factor authentication is supported on client and server sides. This means that the server application may require multiple methods to succeed in order to grant access. On the client side, multiple user authentication events are reported until the server reports a success.
