FiSSH

SSH authentication via Fingerprint scanning over network (SSL Sockets).

This Android app stores your SSH key phrase and sends it to your PC securely via the LAN when an authorized fingerprint is detected by the Android fingerprint scanner.


  • The PC must run Linux and have FiSSH desktop installed - see INSTALL.md here

  • The PC app then returns the received passphrase to OpenSSH and the standard ssh binary completes the login process.

  • It is important to note that none of the FiSSH apps have access to private key file and that FiSSH uses TLS sockets with certificate validation to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks!
