 SSH Public-Key Authentication

On Lamp talks about SSH Public-Key Authentication.

"To set up public-key authentication in your account on an SSH server machine, you create an authorization file, typically called authorized_keys (SSH1, OpenSSH/1), authorized_keys2 (OpenSSH/2), or authorization (SSH2), and list the keys that provide access to your account. Well, we've been keeping a secret. Your authorization file can contain not only keys but also other keywords or options to control the SSH server in powerful ways."
