rsa_key

Use an RSA key to SSH into your Linux Server

From your Linux PC terminal generate an RSA key.

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Then create a file called authorized_keys on the Linux Server user profile you want to RSA into.

Then run the following command from your PC to add your key.

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh user@ipaddress "cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys"

Now you can ssh into your server with an RSA key.
