This is tool for generate ssh RSA key
online and for free.The result of tool generation are ssh rsa private key
and ssh rsa public key
Also it's called as "generate ssh pair
". It will be two text area fileds - the first private key, the second public key.
Whats is "ssh rsa key" and why it is in use? SSH pair created for loggin through ssh without using password, it's help to use very strong and long password for ssh account, but not remember it any time when need to loggin.
Pls note that this ssh RSA key
used in SSH Protocol version 2
. Here is short instruction - hot to use ssh keys (how to setup ssh rsa key).
: 1) Copy your public RSA key to file "id_rsa.pub" 2) scp id_rsa.pub email@example.com:/home/user/id_rsa.pub 3) mv /home/user/id_rsa.pub /home/user/.ssh/authorized_keys2 4)chmod 600 /home/user/.ssh/authorized_keys2
: 1) Copy your private RSA key to local folder - /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa 2)chmod 600 /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa
How to login
("-2" it's for version 2): ssh -2 -v firstname.lastname@example.org
So now you can have strong and secure password and connect to remote host in a second! You should protect your private key, this key is used to gain access on systems which have your private key listed in their authorized keys file. Also, be sure that your private key always is chmod 600, and other users on the system won't have access to it.
