Creating an SSH key (Keypair)

This key makes it possible to authenticate via SSH on hosts (SNS firewall, web server, etc.) deployed on the Outscale platform.

Creating an SSH key

In the COCKPIT 3DS OUTSCALE console, under the Network/Security menu:

  1. Select Keypairs.
  2. Click on Create.
  3. Enter a name for the new SSH key (e.g., Documentation-keypair) and click on Create.
    An SSH key will be generated and a dialog box opens to allow the key to be downloaded.
  4. Download the SSH key and save it on your workstation.
