Bastillion Bastillion

Bastillion is a web-based SSH console that centrally manages administrative access to systems. Web-based administration is combined with management and distribution of user's public SSH keys. Key management and administration is based on profiles assigned to defined users.

Administrators can login using two-factor authentication with Authy or Google Authenticator. From there they can manage their public SSH keys or connect to their systems through a web-shell. Commands can be shared across shells to make patching easier and eliminate redundant command execution.

Bastillion layers TLS/SSL on top of SSH and acts as a bastion host for administration. Protocols are stacked (TLS/SSL + SSH) so infrastructure cannot be exposed through tunneling / port forwarding. More details can be found in the following whitepaper: Implementing a Trusted Third-Party System for Secure Shell. Also, SSH key management is enabled by default to prevent unmanaged public keys and enforce best practices.

Note: When using the AMI instance, the password is defaulted to the <Instance ID>. Also, the AMI uses port 443 as in https://<Instance IP>:443

Managing SSH Keys

By default Bastillion will overwrite all values in the specified authorized_keys file for a system. You can disable key management by editing file and use Bastillion only as a bastion host. This file is located in the jetty/bastillion/WEB-INF/classes directory. (or the src/main/resources directory if building from source)

#set to false to disable key management. If false, the Bastillion public key will be appended to the authorized_keys file (instead of it being overwritten completely).

Also, the authorized_keys file is updated/refreshed periodically based on the relationships defined in the application. If key management is enabled the refresh interval can be specified in the file.

#authorized_keys refresh interval in minutes (no refresh for <=0)

By default Bastillion will generated and distribute the SSH keys managed by administrators while having them download the generated private. This forces admins to use strong passphrases for keys that are set on systems. The private key is only available for download once and is not stored on the application side. To disable and allow administrators to set any public key edit the

#set to true to generate keys when added/managed by users and enforce strong passphrases set to false to allow users to set their own public key

Supplying a Custom SSH Key Pair

Bastillion generates its own public/private SSH key upon initial startup for use when registering systems. You can specify a custom SSH key pair in the file.

For example:

#set to true to regenerate and import SSH keys  --set to true

#SSH Key Type 'dsa' or 'rsa'

#private key  --set pvt key

#public key  --set pub key

#default passphrase  --leave blank if passphrase is empty

After startup and once the key has been registered it can then be removed from the system. The passphrase and the key paths will be removed from the configuration file.

Adjusting Database Settings

Database settings can be adjusted in the configuration properties.

#Database user
#Database password
[email protected]$$w0rd!!
#Database JDBC driver
#Connection URL to the DB

By default the datastore is set as embedded, but a remote H2 database can supported through adjusting the connection URL.

#Connection URL to the DB

External Authentication

External Authentication can be enabled through the

For example:

#specify a external authentication module (ex: ldap-ol, ldap-ad).  Edit the jaas.conf to set connection details

Connection details need to be set in the jaas.conf file

ldap-ol { SUFFICIENT

Administrators will be added as they are authenticated and profiles of systems may be assigned by full-privileged users.

User LDAP roles can be mapped to profiles defined in Bastillion through the use of the org.eclipse.jetty.jaas.spi.LdapLoginModule.

ldap-ol-with-roles {
    //openldap auth with roles that can map to profiles
    org.eclipse.jetty.jaas.spi.LdapLoginModule required
    bindPassword="<BIND-DN PASSWORD>"

Users will be added/removed from defined profiles as they login and when the role name matches the profile name.


Auditing is disabled by default. Audit logs can be enabled through the log4j2.xml by uncommenting the io.bastillion.manage.util.SystemAudit and the audit-appender definitions.

Auditing through the application is only a proof of concept. It can be enabled in the

#enable audit  --set to true to enable
