SSHFP Record: Enhancing SSH Security

As cyber threats continue to evolve, ensuring secure connections is paramount. The SSH Fingerprint (SSHFP) Record is a testament to this need. When setting up SSH (Secure Shell) connections, there’s always a concern about the authenticity of the connecting server. The SSHFP record offers a solution by linking a domain with the cryptographic fingerprint of its SSH public key. Before establishing an SSH session, the client can cross-check the server’s key fingerprint against the SSHFP record in DNS. This check significantly reduces the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks.
