    titleGenerating an SSH key...

    An SSH-Key is a key pair for use in asymmetric cryptosystems. It can be generated with the program ssh-keygen, see man ssh-keygen for more details.

    The filename prompt for the key can be skipped with return. The passphrase is a symmetric key that is used to encrypt your secret key; if you write something there, you have to enter that same password every time you use your key, e.g. when you log in with ssh on a machine where the key is needed. The file .ssh/id_dsa is your secret key, you must never give this file to anyone else. .ssh/ is your public key, this is the one you can give to others so it can be used for cryptography.
