jupyter-forward doesn’t implement any authentication logic.
jupyter-forward relies on remote host’s SSH authentication mechanism. Therefore,
jupyter-forward supports most if not all SSH authentication mechanisms:
Password based authentication
Password/passphrase + Two-factor authentication (Duo, Yubikey, etc) for SSH
Passwordless authentication via public-private key pairs
