Summary

Hostbased authentication with SSH is not working

Issue

Hostbased authentication with SSH has stopped working. The error reported is "Hostbased Permission Denied".

Resolution / Workaround

Check that the permissions for the files in $BOKS_etc/ssh are 644 or 444 or else the BoKS ssh binary will not use them since they would not be considered safe from manipulation.
