BEWARE: this is not a Rails question, but a SwitchTower question. I am
here because SwitchTower is usually employed with Rails.
I am developing what we may call a “distributed video player” in Ruby
NOT a Rails application). It works this way: I have several boxes that
videos and one server, where I store the contents I will later send to
playing boxes (videos are played from local files, not streamed).
When I want to play a video, I want to play it at once in every box, so
send it to every playing box, wait for the files to transfer to every
then send a “play” command to every box.
I’m thinking of using SwitchTower to automate that step. The problem is
password to transfer the files. I’ve read
http://manuals.rubyonrails.com/read/chapter/97 and it looks like I need
have the same password for all servers. I don’t like this approach very
I think it’s not very secure.
So the question is: is it possible to use public key authentication in
