  1. Open a terminal
  2. Execute the following command as the user you plan to use for connecting to INCLINE.

    Code Block
    ssh-keygen -t ed25519

    You can optionally change the location (you probably do not want to do this) and add password protection.  Please don't create a passphrase as we can't support that setup on the end-user side.

  3. Code Block
    titleSample output of ssh-keygen -t ed25519
    [rlaroy@repo ~]$ ssh-keygen -t ed25519
    Generating public/private ed25519 key pair.
    Enter file in which to save the key (/home/rlaroy/.ssh/id_ed25519):
    Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
    Enter same passphrase again:
    Your identification has been saved in /home/rlaroy/.ssh/id_ed25519.
    Your public key has been saved in /home/rlaroy/.ssh/
    The key fingerprint is:
    SHA256:wM8J+0OCJ9tEjyxFGB1vwehUyAzUoyqw7jHUXd/6lls [email protected]
    The key's randomart image is:

  4. Your public key is stored by default in ~/.ssh/ . Provide this key when requesting access to INCLINE.


    When a SSH key pair is created two files will be created id_ed25519 and The file ending in .pub is the public key and must be provided when requesting access to INCLINE. The non .pub file is your private key, treat this like a password and do not share it with anyone.
