In the last post I suggested you add a passphrase to keep your private key secure. The problem with this is that now you have traded entering a password for entering a passphrase which is most likely longer. Doesn’t seem like such a great trade off.
Are you sick of typing in passwords when sshing into systems or when transferring files of scp of sftp. Well the good news is that there is an easier and safer way to do this with ssh keys.
