COP4342 - 2016 Fall
Public key creation assignment

Please create a new public/private key pair on the Linux machine of your choice using ssh-keygen; for example, here is a sample session that I did on linprog3:

(linprog3:~) langley% ssh-keygen
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/faculty/langley/.ssh/id_rsa): /home/faculty/langley/.ssh/id_COP4342_rsa
Created directory '/home/faculty/langley/.ssh'.
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): ********
Enter same passphrase again: ********
Your identification has been saved in /home/faculty/langley/.ssh/id_COP4342_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /home/faculty/langley/.ssh/
The key fingerprint is:
SHA256:R+IhjBk9O8+p3fGJ3WDfnT7CfRfdKL47coSGcqtOXVw langley@linprog3
The key's randomart image is:
+---[RSA 2048]----+

(linprog3:~) langley% cat .ssh/
cat .ssh/

(linprog3:~) langley% 

(If you have an existing .ssh directory, I would recommend that you do this carefully in order to avoid trashing any other keys that you may have created.)

Please submit the public key on Blackboard on the submission link for this assignment. (Please do not submit the private key.)
