comment How is public key authentication secure?
I do not like that fact that public key authentication is regarded more secure compared to password - These are two different schools of thought and each one should be used selectively and should be complemented by having additional security components.

Agree with Daniel and Dennis. However using passphrase doesnt help the scripts - since they need to be hard coded again in the scripts. Keylogger takes time to retrieve passwords. It is not like a compromise while having public key authentication you have it lets access to other machines almost immediately. Of course each of these methods must have additional security components (e.g. system monitoring, key management software for public key).

Actually I have seen that everywhere. Even CIS benchmarks state nosuid to be a different check on /tmp partition. Other references are just by googling: techrepublic.com/blog/opensource/…
