Generating an SSH key

How to create a secure SSH key pair in terminal

Different repository hosting services have different minimum requirements for their SSH keys. We recommend using a widely supported and secure algorithm such as ECDSA or Ed25519 when generating your key pair.

ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -f ~/Desktop/codemagic_ssh_key -q -N ""

This will create two new files on your desktop: codemagic_ssh_key (private key) and codemagic_ssh_key.pub (public key).

Note that issues may arise when using the RSA SHA-1 hash algorithm for generating the key pair as it is being quickly deprecated across operating systems and SSH clients due to various vulnerabilities.
