SSH Keys Linux


Hi,

I've been trying to import SSH Private Key and public keys to my server.

How do I verify is the key is in the correct format ?

Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

Why not push the keys from the client with ssh-copy-id?

Try to login using authorized_keys method... If you are successful it means keys are in correct format.
