How can I generate a pair of RSA public/private keys?
In order to generate a pair of keys you can use the command "ssh-keygen" as follows:
ssh-keygen -t rsa
You will be prompted for the filename where you can save the keys
The passphrase should be long and not easy to be guessed
The command generates two file: one is the private key and the other is the public key. The public key should be sent to us in order to activate services.
If you use Microsoft Windows, then you can generate the pair of keys using the command: puttygen.exe. The process is explained here: http://katsande.com/using-puttygen-to-generate-ssh-private-public-keys
If you are going to activate a SFTP account, then you need to send us the public key, along with the username of the user you want to setup.
