With Tectia ssh server Is it possible to use Public key authentication with a two factor authentication method like SecureID or MobileID or Google Authenticator?

This feature seems possible in OpenSSH 6.2

Yes, you can use nested authentication methods with tectia.

For example this will require public user key auth first, then the second auth method that is nested inside the first "authentication-methods" tag, will prompt the user for a password.

 <authentication-methods login-grace-time="600">
  <authentication name="Default-Authentication" action="allow" password-cache="no">
   <auth-publickey require-dns-match="no" />
   <authentication name="authentication1" action="allow" password-cache="no">
    <auth-password failure-delay="2" max-tries="3" />

All of these links seem to indicate that the two factor is in combination with regular password login. Are you saying that its also possible in combination with Public Key? I want the user to login with his public key and then enter a pass. Both authentications must succeed before access is granted.
