Secure Shell (SSH) Access to IGEL Linux with Keys

IGEL Linux has a built-in OpenSSH server which can be activated and configured via the setup application. It lets you connect securely to the client over the network in order to issue commands or transfer files. While authentication can be done with a username-password combination, using a private-public key pair can increase convenience and/or security. This document describes how to generate and distribute the keys required.
