SSH Automatic RSA Key login

The following method shows how to setup SSH Automatic RSA Key login with two simple steps.

Create RSA key on LOCAL Host without a passphrase.

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Copy the RSA key to the REMOTE Host, while making sure the directory .ssh exists within the user’s home directory.

cat .ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh username@REMOTE.Host 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'
