How do I get a DSA public key ???


I can have access to a VPN if I get a DSA public key.
Can anyone tell me where I can get one.
I have Mandrake 8.1 & I think I will need to set up SSH or something.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get a DSA public key or a link to somewhere that I can read up on it.
Thanks in advance

do you mean RSA key? this is commonly used for vpn access like IPSec. do a 'man sshkeygen' for ssh keys. lookup IPSec for RSA keys.

Thanks for the feedback.
I was told I needed a DSA key but looking at what you said about RSA it could indeed be that I need a RSA key.

I am waiting on a mail to confirm which one I actually need so as soon as I get it I'll let you know.

Just so anyone searching for a solution to this knows:
ssh-keygen -t dsa

there is a full linuxanswer for this question now.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ticle&artid=79

this is a really old thread though, not sure why it needed to be revived in the first place.
