What other fucking form of authentication is there? Certs? Those are just strings - like a password. Encrypted certs? What are you encrypting them with?

It all comes down to a secret someone has too know. Call it a key, a cert, a token, whatever, it's a fucking password at the end of the day.

If your auth'ing with a username / password on an infected server you're actually *sending* your credentials to the server. This is not he case wih a cert auth, especially when you use ssh-agent to hop to other servers.

Comment: A keyboard without 'windows logo' ? (Score 2, Interesting) 383

I don't understand why keyboard manufacturer still put the Windows logo on the meta key (unless Microsoft give them money).

Can you point me out websites where i can buy a keyboard without 'Windows logo' ?

Anyway, only recently I found a use to this key (using it as meta with Awesome window manager. This don't interfere with 'alt' key in irssi !)

P.s. English isn't my first language !
