Can I set up accounts that can do SCP that are NOT local users (i.e. users with an entry in
/etc/passwd)? I've tried googling for SCP "without PAM authentication" or alternative authenication for
sshd but I have not yet found anything that I can use.
In other words: How can I configure SCP access on my Debian machine without having to create a new local account/local user?
Doing this would be useful example in the case of a webhost with several
VirtualHost entries in
httpd.conf allowing people to securely upload their website assets without the admin having to create an account and setup SSHd to point to their
htdocs directory as their home directory.
