I'm reading a new chapter of The Imposter's Handbook: Season 2 that Rob and I are working on. He's digging into the internals of what's exactly in your SSH Key. I generated a key with no password: ssh-keygen -t rsa -C [email protected] Inside the generated file is this text, that we've all seen before but few have cracked open.
