In this ccna lab we will learn ssh configuration on cisco routers.I use step by step method to made this configuration easy and clear.
To enable secure access to your Cisco device, you can use SSH instead of Telnet which is less secure than SSH.
SSH uses encryption to secure data from eavesdropping while telnet use clear text username and password which can be hacked or sniffed by hackers easily. So i recommend you to use SSH instead of TELNET. Although you can use telnet where security is not a great concern.

ssh on cisco router
We can configure ssh on cisco router by following these simple steps :

 

 

Step1. set up a hostname and and a domain name

 

Router>enable

Router#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#host satish

satish(config)#ip domain-name linuxtiwary.com

 

Step2. configure local username and password

 

satish(config)#username ccna password linux123
Step3. generate RSA public and private keys
satish(config)#crypto key generate rsa

The name for the keys will be: satish.linuxtiwary.com

Choose the size of the key modulus in the range of 360 to 2048 for your

General Purpose Keys. Choosing a key modulus greater than 512 may take

a few minutes.

How many bits in the modulus [512]: 1024

% Generating 1024 bit RSA keys, keys will be non-exportable...[OK]

 

Step4. Allow only SSH access

 

satish(config)#line vty 0 10

*Mar 1 0:4:43.632: %SSH-5-ENABLED: SSH 1.99 has been enabled

satish(config-line)#login local

satish(config-line)#transport input ssh

 

Step5. apply enable password
satish(config)#enable password ccna123

 

 

Step6:Now go to pc assign ip address and login on router using SSH.

ip on pc

PC>ssh -l ccna 1.0.0.1
Open
Password:

satish>

hence our ssh is successfully  configured on cisco router.
