Description Thorsten Kukuk 2018-12-14 09:52:57 UTC
On Kubic/MicroOS we configure the system per default that you login the first time as root via ssh. Afterwards you can copy your ssh key.

With the new openssh this is no longer possible ...
Comment 1 Richard Brown 2018-12-30 16:18:36 UTC
It is possible to now copy your ssh key during the installation - the root password prompt now has an Import Public Key section

Therefore the new openssh default of not allowing root authentication with a password isn't quite so bad..lowering the severity accordingly

Possible Solutions

1: Change ssh config to allow root password auth - I do not like this idea
2. Change the installer to create a user during installation - I'm indifferent
3. Accept the current behaviour - I prefer this

openssh change got reverted.
