Web SSH for tildeverse? by klu | tildeverse BBJ

SDF.org has a web ssh frontend: https://sdf.org/ssh

It can be really handy when you're out there with an emergency and don't have a computer with you, or in a network where outgoing SSH is blocked by firewall.

Can we have one for tildeverse? One problem I see is that most tilde pubnixes does't allow password login.

This would be a nice differentiating feature for a specific tilde to offer. I have no plans to add web access to cosmic, but maybe one of the others will bite.

I'm guessing that SDF doesn't require ssh key login though?  Because I couldn't see that being a viable option when I think most tildes require ssh key authentication.

Otherwise I'd set it up already lol

Right, SDF allows normal login.

it is possible to program a web interface for SSH but I am not sure how secure it is, and if it's a good idea.
One thing I am absolutely sure about would be that it 100% requires SSL, no unencrypted authentication... ever...
