up with your former colleagues whilst providing guidance and direction
to current Computer Science and UWaterloo students. If this interests

help to reach out to your friends and bring you together for this event.

Treasurer, UWaterloo CSC
Due to the increasing security threats leveraging passwords, the University of
Waterloo has moved to require that all SSH Servers exposed to the public
Internet must enforce strong authentication by November 1st, 2021.
To comply with this requirement, we will be disabling password authentication
for SSH on all CSC general-use machines on October 15th, 2021. We
suggest that you add your SSH public key to your ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
if you have not done so already.
We will still enable password authentication on the campus network. This
means that you may still login via SSH with your password if you are
physically on campus, are using a student CS machine as a jump host, or
are using the campus VPN. However, we still suggest setting up public key
auth anyways for non-campus access.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email the Systems
Committee at syscom(a)csclub.uwaterloo.ca.
