Adding SSH keys

You can add and store SSH keys in Privileged Access Service. After the keys are added, users with the appropriate permissions can retrieve and use these keys, instead of passwords, to log in to UNIX systems, Generic SSH systems, and network devices.

Privileged Access Service supports PEM and PPK for formatted keys and the following key algorithms:

  • DSA
  • RSA
  • ECDSA
  • EdDSA

After adding a key, you can do the following:

There are three ways to add SSH keys:

  • Adding the SSH key at the SSH Keys tab (Admin Portal> ResourcesSSH Keys > Add Key).
  • Dragging and dropping the SSH key at the SSH Key tab (Admin Portal> ResourcesSSH Keys > then drag and drop).
  • Upload the SSH key while adding the account (Admin Portal> Resources > Systems > Add System).
