SUMMARY: Secure Telnet

From: Stephen Pendleton (

I received several suggestions on this. Most people suggested a skey or
Keberos. I think for us kerberos may be to much. It depends on if it
takes a large amount of time to install.
Skey could be viable but I would have a hard time convincing others to
use onetime passwords. What I would like to see is a scheme where you
use onetime passwords or a public/private key encryption scheme if the
client end of the telnet connection supports it, otherwise the logon
would proceed "normally" (prompting for a username and password).
I will resummarize after I have read a little bit more and hopefully got
some more feedback from the list.
