Windows users should please follow this guide to generate their keys.
If you are using an *NIX operating system (Linux/MacOS/Unix), it is very easy.
To generate your SSH, run the
ssh-keygen command from the terminal on your local machine. Your terminal will confirm generation of the key pair and ask where to save the keys.
bash $ ssh-keygen Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/Users/localuser/.ssh/id_rsa):
Hit enter to accept the path and filename.
Print out the public key in the terminal using the
cat command and the
/path/to/your/id_rsa.pub. Like so:
$ cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQD0NlbKiLwqNHF/H+OcQd6ShGz34874837 sdkniwkajhsdkjahdssflmckjkaslfZObTqh6vhbNxTChUbrIZpICE9wqTYVIvNDRc75bM2YEXBymYpZ4ZE17WwT+ko2UsxygWC+yxwG9p348973298472lksndakashdCYxdE232n5l1hQe38VPDlEOBcti8ZRYO42XQxv0jcb86jbpbNoqO2yCfa/Aj6hJaSLcbGVdZRAijU/JCcKd7WTGIIhGWrw43q+HDLuF+9Z [email protected]
Copy this key to the clipboard.
Note: do not copy the exact key above, as it serves only as an example, and you should be copying the key generated from step 1.
