ssh2_auth_hostbased_file --  Authenticate using a public hostkey


bool ssh2_auth_hostbased_file ( resource session, string username, string hostname, string pubkeyfile, string privkeyfile [, string passphrase [, string local_username]] )

Authenticate using a public hostkey read from a file. If privkeyfile is encrypted (which it should be), the passphrase must be provided. If local_username is omitted, then the value for username will be used for it.

Example 1. Authentication using a public hostkey

$connection = ssh2_connect('shell.example.com', 22, array('hostkey'=>'ssh-rsa'));

if (ssh2_auth_hostbased_file($connection, 'remoteusername', 'myhost.example.com',
                             '/usr/local/etc/hostkey_rsa', 'secret',
                             'localusername')) {
  echo "Public Key Hostbased Authentication Successful\n";
} else {
  die('Public Key Hostbased Authentication Failed');

Note: ssh2_auth_hostbased_file() requires libssh2 >= 0.7 and PHP/SSH2 >= 0.7
