Setting up password-less SSH on your local MacOS to CS servers

First make sure you can successfully obtain a kerberos ticket with kinit and you can get to your AFS home from your Mac. If you can not, then you will need to install and AFS client.

See: https://support.cs.stanford.edu/hc/en-us/articles/115001545426-How-to-access-AFS-on-Mac-OS-v-10-12-Sierra-

 

Then you just need to set up GSSAPI delegation. Try adding the following to your ~/.ssh/config:

Host *.stanford.edu
    GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes
    GSSAPIAuthentication yes

Some additional info here: http://snap.stanford.edu/moin/SshKerberosMac, but don't install the KCT app mentioned on the page.
