Git - DESE Git Server

From EdWiki

DESE Git Server

  • Remote repositories are hosted on
  • Users access the server using the SSH protocol
  • Access over SSH is secure - all data transfer is encrypted and authenticated
  • SSH is the only network-based protocol that we can easily read from and write to Git Remote repositories.
  • To simplify user management - A single user called gituser is created
  • This user is restricted to do only the Git activities and can't shell on to the Server
  • Server is configured to authenticate user (user's computer) using the SSH public keys
