Re: [suse-security] safety with scp



A low-tech alternative: why be complicated when you don't need to?

You are not running ssh at the moment. Do you send and receive e-mail while
on the road? Can you/do you run a mailserver?

Set up a special account and allow it to receive e-mail from anywhere, but
use procmail to filter so that everything which is not sent by you and/or
doesn't fit some profile of the messages containing images is discarded.
There are mail-based authentication techniques as well, if you feel a need
to go that far rather than simply sifting through the accumulated messags
when you return home.
