X2Go on Centos

(0 comments)

I recently did a tutorial on how to add two-factor authentication to X2Go via pam-radius on Ubuntu.  I've been playing with X2go since then on CentOS. I've released the packer.io scripts that I used to create my X2Go virtual boxes on Github. In addition, since packer can output AMIs, we've released a public AMI of the output. It is ami-c854d7a0 (based on a Rightscale image).

The AMI is almost ready for two-factor auth.  You still need to edit /etc/pam.d/sshd and the line "auth       sufficient   pam_radius_auth.so" as the 2nd line.  Also, add your radius server and shared secret to /etc/raddb/server.  (I'm still working out how to allow EC2 keys and pam-radius.  Any help appreciated. )

If you launch the AMI,  you can add a user and that user can create a virtual desktop right away with the X2Go client. Pretty slick way to test it out.
