Secure Shell: Working with SSH Keys

If you're interested in working with Linux, you need to understand the Secure Shell (SSH) service. SSH is used for hundreds of purposes from automation, to manual management, to deployment of new services. Working with SSH keys is important as it means you don't have to have a password, or you can use it as another layer of authentication. This lab will enable you to practice working with SSH keys.
