ssh-keygen: password-less SSH login script (via Novell User Communities)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/01/20

I usually get at least one step wrong when doing ssh-keygen and transferring they public key by hand, so here [WayBack] is a nice script called that helps you install a private/public keypair for remote SSH login without having to type a remote password.


The script uses ssh-copy-id to actually perform the copying of the public key portion to the destination server. So you can also use this command to do that yourself:

ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/ user@target-host
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/ user@target-host

Note that at the time of editing (early 2018), you should not use DSA based keys any more; see [WayBack] Secure Secure Shell.
