ssh-keygen

 
Generate ssh keys used for authentication, password-less logins, and other things. More information: https://man.openbsd.org/ssh-keygen.
 
  • Generate a key interactively:
     
    ssh-keygen
     
  • Specify file in which to save the key:
     
    ssh-keygen -f {{~/.ssh/filename}}
     
  • Generate an ed25519 key with 100 key derivation function rounds:
     
    ssh-keygen -t {{ed25519}} -a {{100}}
     
  • Generate an RSA 4096-bit key with email as a comment:
     
    ssh-keygen -t {{dsa|ecdsa|ed25519|rsa}} -b {{4096}} -C "{{comment|email}}"
     
  • Remove the keys of a host from the known_hosts file (useful when a known host has a new key):
     
    ssh-keygen -R {{remote_host}}
     
  • Retrieve the fingerprint of a key in MD5 Hex:
     
    ssh-keygen -l -E {{md5}} -f {{~/.ssh/filename}}
     
  • Change the password of a key:
     
    ssh-keygen -p -f {{~/.ssh/filename}}
     
  • Change the type of the key format (for example from OPENSSH format to PEM), the file will be rewritten in-place:
     
    ssh-keygen -p -N "" -m {{PEM}} -f {{~/.ssh/OpenSSH_private_key}}
