For some time I've been using a hand-rolled solution for touchID over ssh which
I previously blogged about. Up until recently it's been a somewhat
loosely-compiled scattering of config that wasn't really in a releasable form
but with a pending security talk on the horizon I thought it would be worth
tidying it up and making it releasable so I could mention it in my talk.
TouchID on the mac is really cool. It's awesome being able to use it for sudo,
but I thought it would be even more awesome if it could be used to authenticate
sudo remotely over ssh.
I've made this work using touch2sudo - https://github.com/prbinu/touch2sudo
which is a simple binary that when executed will show a touchID authentication
