How to Use SSH Keys

SSH delivers a secure channel over an unsecured network in a client-server architecture, connecting an SSH client with an SSH server. Creating an SSH key set provides you with a public and a private key. You can place the public key on any server, and then unlock it by connecting to it with a client that already has the private key you created on it. When the SSH key sets match up, the system unlocks without the need for a password.
