Level 14

Objectives

  1. SSH to user bandit13
  2. Get SSH private key in /etc/bandit_pass/bandit14, which is readable by only bandit14.

Objective 1

  • Username: bandit13
  • Password: 8ZjyCRiBWFYkneahHwxCv3wb2a1ORpYL
  • Port: 2220
  • IP/Hostname: bandit.labs.overthewire.org
user@localhost:~$ ssh -p 2220 bandit13@bandit.labs.overthewire.org

Success!

Objective 2

The SSH private key shouldn't be readable by us, but we'll be able to use it as the password for bandit14.

If you do an ls, you'll see that there is sshkey.private in the home directory.

bandit13@bandit:~$ cat sshkey.private
