This section covers the basic procedures for accessing OLCF computational resources.
To avoid risks associated with using plain-text communication, the only supported remote client on OLCF systems is a secure shell (SSH) client, which encrypts the entire session between OLCF systems and the client system.
For UNIX-based SSH clients, the following line should be in either the default
ssh_config file or your
The line may also contain other authentication methods, but
