Two Factor Auth and QR Codes

Talk about going down a rabbit hole.

Finally got to factor authentication going though ssh.

As with trying new things, this had several challenges. One thing that I missed was that the method I found online requires an ssh key and I simply forgot to load my key into pagent.

Then I got in to importing the secret key into my phone and wanted to use a qr code

Found out there was a package for it in the epel repo, somthing called qrencode but it is kind of hard to use

So tried to find a GUI for it, found a python one…. too many dependancies.

Calling it good
