Generate and Download an SSH Keypair

Access to compute resources in GENI is provided through ssh key pairs and thus the portal needs a public key to upload to compute resources. These steps will cause the portal to create an SSH key pair for you. (However, if you prefer to use your personal public key you can choose to upload it.)

  1. Once you are logged in, click on your name in the upper right hand corner and select SSH Keys from the pulldown menu.
  2. On the new page, select the generate and download an SSH keypair button.
  1. Enter the same passphrase twice, then press Generate SSH private key. Note: You will need to remember the passphrase later in the tutorial.
