- Now you have a bash prompt that functions almost exactly like the equivalent Linux or macOS prompt, so you can run ssh-keygen as explained in the previous section.- The ssh-keygen command will generate the two files that make up an ssh key pair for you, "id_rsa" (the private portion) and "id_rsa.pub" (the public portion). - By default, both files will be saved to "C:\Users\WindowsLoginName\Documents\MobaXterm\home\.ssh\."- Protect your private key file, "id_rsa".- Choose a strong passphrase when creating it, keep the file safe, and never share it with anyone. Or, you can just hit enter if you wish to not enter any passphrase when logging into the cluster.- When requesting an account on a cluster, submit the file "id_rsa.pub" as your public key.
Developed by SSH Communications Security Ltd., Secure Shell is a an encrypted network protocol used to log into another computer over an unsecured network, to execute commands in a remote machine, and to move files from one machine to another in a secure way.On UNIX/LINUX/BSD type systems, SSH is also the name of a suite of software applications forconnecting via the SSH protocol. The SSH applications can executecommands on a remote machine and transfer files from one machine toanother. All communications are automatically and transparentlyencrypted, including passwords. Most versions of SSH provide login(ssh, slogin), a remote copy operation (scp), and many also provide asecure ftp client (sftp). Additionally, SSH allows secure X Windowconnections. 2b1af7f3a8
