How to add an SSH Zero Trust Application

The following guide walks you through configuring an SSH connection to a remote server. Make sure you are familiar with the server's authentication methods (username and password or SSH keys) and that you have a tunnel connecting your network and the environment that hosts the server before you begin.

1. Go to the Applications tab at the Perimeter 81 Platform. Select add application.


2. Fill in the following information:


  • Application Name: Choose an indicative name of your own choice.
  • Protocol: SSH
  • Icon: Use default or choose an icon of your own choice.
  • Host: Enter the internal IP address of the server to which you'd like to connect.
  • Port: 22
  • Network: Choose the network that contains the gateway from which you created a tunnel to the environment that hosts the server you'd like to connect to. 
  • Display Application Icon at Login Screen: Choose according to your own preference.
  • URL Alias (Optional): See further instructions here.

  • Authentication: If disabled, you'll need to insert your credentials as predefined on the server with every login;
    Username and Password: Enter one set of credentials as predefined on the server. You will not be required to enter any parameter with the login.
    Private Key/Username/Passphrase: Enter your RSA-SSH key under Private Key with a correlating username (according to user settings predefined in the server). Note that a certificate typically starts with the a prefix and a suffix such as the following:
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    If a passphrase is a set along with SSH key, enter it as well, else leave blank.
  • Access Groups: State the names of the user group who'll have access to the SSH application.
  • Policy: Leave blank, or choose a policy that was previously created and matches your needs.

3. In order to connect to the application insert the application FQDN in the URL line of your browser or connect through the Perimeter 81 platform.
