Generating keys on macOS#


  • macOS operating system

  • OpenSSH

Every macOS install comes with its own implementation of OpenSSH, so you don’t need to install any third-party software to use it. Just open a Terminal window and jump in! Because of this, you can use the same commands as specified in the on the “ Generating keys on Linux” section to access the cluster and transfer files.

Create a public/private key pair#

Generating a public/private key pair is identical to what is described for the linux client, that is, by using the ssh-keygen command in a Terminal window.
