Join Brandon Rich for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding SSH key authentication, part of Amazon Web Services: Deploying and Provisioning (2016).
- [Instructor] In order to work…with ec2 instances,…you're going to need to understand SSH Key Authentication.…What's typically required when you want to log-in…to a remote Linux server?…Like a new Amazon Linux ec2 instance.…Port 22 must be accessible from your location.…The host must have SSHD running…and you must have a username and a password.…Password authentication must be enabled…and the client logs in with some SSHD client software…such as OS10's built-in SSH command…or PuTTY for Windows.…The default situation in AWS is a little different.…
First, Amazon Linux automatically provisions…an admin level user called ec2 user.…Second, they do not provide password log-in by default.…Instead, we'll rely on SSH Key Authentication.…SSH Key Authentication replaces password authentication…using public-private key encryption.…Logging in with your private key…requires the remote host has the public key installed.…First, you must generate a public-private key pair.…This can be done on Linux or Mac OS X…with the SSH keygen command,…
