is an option for RemoteConnect and related functions that determines whether caching of authorization information on remote hosts should be used.


  • With RemoteAuthorizationCaching->False, explicit username and password or other authentication information must be explicitly provided to RemoteConnect and related functions.
  • With RemoteAuthorizationCaching->True, a cryptographic key is cached on the remote host after the first connection is made, which allows subsequent connections to be made without giving an explicit password.
  • Cached authorization is typically stored on the remote machine in the .ssh folder of the $HomeDirectory for the specified user.
