This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I was asked to integrate SSH public key authentication to my code (to avoid using passwords when logging into a server). I have searched the web but I'm not sure if I have the terms wrong - I'm not finding any examples. Does anyone know where I can look or can someone recommend a book?
What kind of communication are you trying to enable? SSH is used to open a terminal connection to a remote machine (like Telnet, only more secure). As such, it's rarely used in an application - you'd use the SSH client from the command line. Sometimes it's used to enable secure FTP transfers, though (and then it's called SFTP). So ... what exactly does this code do?

Thanks for your reply.
I need the code for 2 things: 1. to FTP a file from one location to another and 2. to login to the server and verify that a file exists in a specific location.
We do this right now using a username and password but these change quite often and it would be easier to use a token or key to login instead of a password.
I'll peruse the link you sent and see if it meets my needs.
