SSH and GitHub

When you create an account on Github.com you might not realize that you need to setup your SSH keys. Here is what I did to make that happen…

On my box I did ssh-keygen -t rsa  I answered with the default yes’…although not as secure, since this is just for practice Im not worried a ton about that aspect right now.

I then logged onto my github account and added my SSH key by going to account settings and then the SSH Key section. I copied my PUBLIC key content from my key located at ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub and pasted it in the window forthe key content.

Once this was complete I ran ssh -vT git@github.com to make sure I could connect ok…

If successful you should see something like this…
