System Preparation

The Moonshot client mechanism and ID manager are part of the standard Debian 9 repository. However, if you prefer getting updates directly from us, configure the Moonshot repository as well.

Add the Moonshot Repository

  • Add the Moonshot Debian Jessie repository to your system. To do this, run the following command (as root, or using sudo):

    Code Block
    $ echo "deb jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/moonshot.list
  • Install the Moonshot GPG key:

    Code Block
    $ wget -O - | apt-key add -
  • Update the apt cache with the new repository information:

    Code Block
    Code Block
    1. dpkg -
    get install moonshot-gss-eap moonshot-ui
    1. i libevent-openssl-2.0-5_2.0.21-stable-3_amd64_libssl1.0.deb  moonshot-ui_1.0.6-2_amd64.deb moonshot-gss-eap_1.0.1-3_amd64.deb libmoonshot1_1.0.6-2_amd64.deb
    2. Finalise the installation of the packages and the dependencies:

      Code Block
      $ apt-get install -f

    Next steps

    At this point, you now have all of the required Moonshot software on your device, including the Moonshot Identity Selector. Depending on what client application you are using and wish to enable Moonshot authentication for, you job may now be done, or you may need to go and install a Moonshot compatible version of the client software or configure your existing client. Check the section on client compatibility if you are unsure.
