SSH key management

hey everybody,
what strategies/programs do you use for secure key management?


  • Greetings owenpkent,

    I have used the following method in the past to manage SSH.
    You can see what applications used for the workflow. Exclude the ++++ as those are just separators.

    When using ssh-keygen, research the latest encryption methods and update your keys. If you use your keys on multiple systems and need access script and automate key changes using applications such as ansible.

    ssh-keygen -t dsa -f id_dsa
    mkdir .ssh
    chmod 700 .ssh
    cd .ssh
    vim authorized_keys
    chmod 600 authorized_keys
    ssh-copy-id -i

    I hope this is what you are looking for.
