enhanced SSHAuth plugin for pGina
Please note: This plugin will only work on Windows NT4/2000/XP.
It was used in various student labs I managed at the Dresden University of Technology from 2006 until 2014, when they switched to Windows 7.
This is an enhanced version of Ahmed Obied‘s SSHAuth plugin for pGina 2.x – an alternative open source Windows logon screen which is far more flexible than the original Windows one.
additional features to Ahmed’s version:
SSH keyboard-interactive authentication
optional: determine user’s full name based on a given command that is remotely executed on SSH server and its output is redirected to pGina, so that the full name appears in user’s description on your Windows machine or even on your Windows Server in Active Directory automagically
optional: ability to execute an arbitrary command on remote SSH server
optional: save output of the remote command to a local file
enhanced configuration dialog
Makefile for MS C++ compiler
Many SSH servers – especially OpenSSH servers – have password-authentication disabled. So the original plugin is not working with those servers. And sometimes it is useul to execute a command on the remote during the login process – e.g. to find out user’s quota on remote server. Then it is also useful to store the output of the command to a file. This way you can evaluate this file in the windows logon script and give the user a response if he exceeded his quota. I added a Makefile for easy building on the command prompt, because I don’t like the bloated Visual Studio (Express) – I used the free C++ compiler included in
Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit, PSPad as Source-Code-Editor and ResEdit as Resource-Editor – both small, fast and free programs.
This plugin was successfully tested against the following servers and SSH versions:

So it should work with any SSH server …
