Hopefully not a dup, but can't find an answer to this one... I found this, which on the surface seems to be the same, but is very old and the only answer in it does not answer the actual question: Set Users as chrooted for sftp, but allow user to login in SSH
I have successfully setup a working ChrootDirectory environment via sftp for users in group 'sftp_users'. It works well, all the proper perms and such, restricting access to only sftp, and they can rw in their subdirectory(s) inside the ChrootDirectory. This is great for non-privelaged users, disallowing ssh access and only allowing rw inside their subfolder(s) within the ChrootDirectory.
I would like to have slightly more privelaged users who are still able to use ssh normally, however when logging in via sftp will then have the ChrootDirectory environment. This is less of a security issue, as they are considered privelaged and obvi can surf around the file-system in ssh within their normal user permissions. Problem is, I am not seeing a way to Chroot them when they login under sftp without preventing ssh login. This is more for standardization and convienience than anything else, so when they sftp they just arrive at their Chrooted location like the sftp-only users.
I thought this would work if I left their shell as the default (not /bin/false or nologin). Unfortunately, when they are in the sftp_only group, it will not allow them to ssh in at all, only sftp. Is there a workaround for this, other than having two separate accounts-- one added to 'sftp_users' and one not in that group? So far, all I can find is documentation on restricting the sftp Chroot and simultaneously disallowing ssh if they are in that group.
Example user is 'test'. 'test' is in the sftp_users group, and can therefore login via sftp and be Chrooted to his specified folder ('/sftp/test') and read or write to his home folder bind-mounted at '/sftp/test/home'. This all works. But even if his shell is still set in /etc/passwd to /bin/bash, 'test' cannot login via ssh if added to the sftp_users group. Remove membership in that group and he can do both, but then not Chrooted under sftp.
Users not in the group 'sftp_users' can still login via ssh or sftp, but are not Chrooted under sftp.
Is there a way to Match which protocol is used, and/or maybe set an additional Match for a different group? I'm only looking for the chroot when they login via sftp. The non-chroot via ssh is fine for these users.
