Verifying a Secure SSH Connection

Verifying a Self Signed Certificate Webpage (HTTPS/SSL/TLS)

Some CIMS servers use Self-Signed Digital Certificates that may require that your browser authenticate the certificate before accepting it.  If the fingerprint for the certificate provided for that host matches those listed below you can safely accept that certificate.

  • webern.cs.nyu.edu
    • SHA1 Fingerprint: 95:D9:3C:42:DA:45:7C:
      B6:4F:6E:FD:5B:D3:F7:46:52:CB:C6:0A:47
    • MD5 Fingerprint: 07:16:EB:E9:D6:8E:2F:
      05:AC:4D:F9:AD:C8:19:1D:D2

If the fingerprints provided do not match those listed above or if you don't know how to verify a self-signed certificate please contact helpdesk@cims.nyu.edu.

Verifying a Secure Shell Connection (SSH)

When connecting using ssh for the first time to an unknown host (one of our remote access servers for example) you will be asked whether you trust this host with some kind of prompt similar to this one:

The authenticity of host 'SOMEHOST (N.N.N.N)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

To verify the integrity of the host, make sure that the public key fingerprint matches those of our corresponding servers:
