How to Set Up Key Authentification in Putty without user password

By | November 19, 2008

Yesterday I’ve purchased my first communicator. Certainly, I need it to have SSH access to my servers. As my passwords are not so simple, I’ve decided to read about key authentification in order to prevent entering long user passwords without the loss of security.

I’ve found two good articles and I won’t copy their content to my site: they are too great for this and contain all the necessary screenshots. Following this guides you won’t have any problems setting up your key authentification.

Here are these great links: Public Key Authentication With PuTTY and Key Authentication with PuTTY. I’ve followed the second one to tune it on my home PC and then transferred to my communicator. Hope these articles will help you to secure your connections too.
