bookmark_borderTo view Account Authentication Log

Hello!

In this week’s feature highlight, we look at how to view the Account Authentication Log.

Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a person or device. It is the mechanism of associating an incoming request with a set of identifying credentials

It is important because it enables organizations to keep their networks secure by permitting only authenticated users to access their protected resources.

To Know who had accessed your account,

Login to your CrownPanel, click on the username dropdown, and select Authentication log

Authentication log

Here you can view a list of all the login attempts made to your account along with the IP, Login time, and its Status.

If you wish to disable the authentication log for your account, this can be done, please contact us via the client area via a Support Ticket and we will disable this for your account. Please note, once the authentication log is disabled we will not be able to find out who has logged into your account.

Hello!

In this week’s feature highlight, we look at how to add SSH keys to your KVM VPS using CrownPanel.

An SSH key is an access credential that is similar to Username and Password, but these keys are used for the automated process.
And these are cryptographic keys using a public key cryptosystem which provides improved security to the system.

It’s easy to add SSH key in our control panel.

Click on “SSH Keys” in the navbar,

Click on “New Key” to add a new SSH key,

Once the key is added, switch to the “VPS List” from the navbar,

Click on the “Manage” button beside the VPS you wish to manage,

Switch to the “Reinstall” tab and you can now select your SSH key,

Done!
