set domain-controller <dc-setting>

Add domain controller setting in the authentication scheme.

Note that this entry is only available when method is set to ntlm and/or negotiate-ntlm is set to enable.

set method {ssh-publickey | ...}

set user-database <server-name>

set ssh-ca <ca-cert-name>

New public key based SSH authentication scheme.

The user name is embedded in ssh-publickey. User group information will be retrieved if the public key is validated by the CA.

Note that both user-database and ssh-ca are only available when method is set to ssh-publickey.
