#define RSA_PRIV_FILENAME "/etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key"

/* Set NON_INETD_MODE if you require daemon functionality (ie Dropbear listens
 * on chosen ports and keeps accepting connections. This is the default.
 * Set INETD_MODE if you want to be able to run Dropbear with inetd (or
 * similar), where it will use stdin/stdout for connections, and each process
 * lasts for a single connection. Dropbear should be invoked with the -i flag
 * for inetd, and can only accept IPv4 connections.
 * Both of these flags can be defined at once, don't compile without at least
 * one of them. */
#define INETD_MODE

/* Setting this disables the fast exptmod bignum code. It saves ~5kB, but is
 * perhaps 20% slower for pubkey operations (it is probably worth experimenting
 * if you want to use this) */
/*#define NO_FAST_EXPTMOD*/

/* Set this if you want to use the DROPBEAR_SMALL_CODE option. This can save
several kB in binary size however will make the symmetrical ciphers and hashes
slower, perhaps by 50%. Recommended for small systems that aren't doing
much traffic. */

/* Enable X11 Forwarding - server only */
#define ENABLE_X11FWD

/* Enable TCP Fowarding */
/* 'Local' is "-L" style (client listening port forwarded via server)
 * 'Remote' is "-R" style (server listening port forwarded via client) */



/* Enable Authentication Agent Forwarding - server only for now */

/* Note: Both ENABLE_CLI_PROXYCMD and ENABLE_CLI_NETCAT must be set to
 * allow multihop dbclient connections */

/* Allow using -J <proxycommand> to run the connection through a 
   pipe to a program, rather the normal TCP connection */

/* Enable "Netcat mode" option. This will forward standard input/output
 * to a remote TCP-forwarded connection */

/* Encryption - at least one required.
 * Protocol RFC requires 3DES and recommends AES128 for interoperability.
 * Including multiple keysize variants the same cipher 
 * (eg AES256 as well as AES128) will result in a minimal size increase.*/
#define DROPBEAR_AES128
#define DROPBEAR_AES256
/* Compiling in Blowfish will add ~6kB to runtime heap memory usage */

/* Enable "Counter Mode" for ciphers. This is more secure than normal
 * CBC mode against certain attacks. This adds around 1kB to binary 
 * size and is recommended for most cases */

/* Message Integrity - at least one required.
 * Protocol RFC requires sha1 and recommends sha1-96.
 * sha1-96 may be of use for slow links, as it has a smaller overhead.
 * Note: there's no point disabling sha1 to save space, since it's used
 * for the random number generator and public-key cryptography anyway.
 * Disabling it here will just stop it from being used as the integrity portion
 * of the ssh protocol.
 * These hashes are also used for public key fingerprints in logs.
 * If you disable MD5, Dropbear will fall back to SHA1 fingerprints,
 * which are not the standard form. */

/* Hostkey/public key algorithms - at least one required, these are used
 * for hostkey as well as for verifying signatures with pubkey auth.
 * Removing either of these won't save very much space.
 * SSH2 RFC Draft requires dss, recommends rsa */

/* RSA can be vulnerable to timing attacks which use the time required for
 * signing to guess the private key. Blinding avoids this attack, though makes
 * signing operations slightly slower. */

/* Define DSS_PROTOK to use PuTTY's method of generating the value k for dss,
 * rather than just from the random byte source. Undefining this will save you
 * ~4k in binary size with static uclibc, but your DSS hostkey could be exposed
 * if the random number source isn't good. In general this isn't required */
/* #define DSS_PROTOK */

/* Control the memory/performance/compression tradeoff for zlib.
 * Set windowBits=8, memLevel=1 for least memory usage, see your system's
 * zlib.h for full details.
 * Default settings (windowBits=15, memLevel=8) will use 
 * 256kB for compression + 32kB for decompression.
 * windowBits=8, memLevel=1 will use 10kB compression + 32kB decompression.
 * Note that windowBits is only set for deflate() - inflate() always uses the
 * default of 15 so as to interoperate with other clients. */

 * size */

/* Authentication Types - at least one required.
   RFC Draft requires pubkey auth, and recommends password */

/* Note: PAM auth is quite simple, and only works for PAM modules which just do
 * a simple "Login: " "Password: " (you can edit the strings in svr-authpam.c).
 * It's useful for systems like OS X where standard password crypts don't work,
 * but there's an interface via a PAM module - don't bother using it otherwise.
 * You can't enable both PASSWORD and PAM. */

/* PAM requires ./configure --enable-pam */

/* Whether to take public key options in 
 * authorized_keys file into account */


/* This variable can be used to set a password for client
 * authentication on the commandline. Beware of platforms
 * that don't protect environment variables of processes etc. Also
 * note that it will be provided for all "hidden" client-interactive
 * style prompts - if you want something more sophisticated, use 
 * SSH_ASKPASS instead. Comment out this var to remove this functionality.*/

/* Define this (as well as ENABLE_CLI_PASSWORD_AUTH) to allow the use of
 * a helper program for the ssh client. The helper program should be
 * specified in the SSH_ASKPASS environment variable, and dbclient
 * should be run with DISPLAY set and no tty. The program should
 * return the password on standard output */

/* Random device to use - define either DROPBEAR_RANDOM_DEV or
 * DROPBEAR_RANDOM_DEV is recommended on hosts with a good /dev/(u)random,
 * otherwise use run prngd (or egd if you want), specifying the socket. 
 * The device will be queried for a few dozen bytes of seed a couple of times
 * per session (or more for very long-lived sessions). */
