Dear contributors,

We have purchased Nutanix appliances and I am working as part of the IT Security team. We have enforced the security settings on CVM and AHV (STIG, banner, ...) and, as part of our duties, we carry out regular checks to make sure that the security settings have not been altered. For this, we would like to have nominative accounts which are able to connect through SSH and be able to check on the settings of the components.

Is it possible to do? If yes, how can we proceed?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

just came across your question; you maybe already get your answer.
you can add a public key in the Prism Settings page.
then you can ssh with the nutanix user and the corresponing private key.
