Limit SSH Logins Per User/Group/System
As you probably know, we can SSH into a remote Linux system by the same user multiple times. There is no limit! You could simply open multiple Terminal windows (or multiple tabs in the Terminal) and initiate multiple SSH sessions from each tab by the same user account. What if you want to change this behaviour? For example, you might want to allow only one active SSH session for an user. That’s what we are going to see now. This brief tutorial explains how to limit the number of SSH logins per user or group or system on Linux.
In most Linux distributions, there is a file called limits.conf where you can define the maximum number of concurrent SSH sessions for an user or group of users. If the particular user tries to SSH into the system more than the allowed SSH logins, he/she will be denied access.
