SSH key not working

First of all, check what plugin failed. There are two, a normal one and a V2 one. If the normal one failed but V2 succeeded everything is OK and you can ignore the below.


  • ssh-rsa needs to be enabled in /etc/crypto-policies/back-ends/opensshserver.config:
HostKeyAlgorithms [...],ssh-rsa
PubkeyAcceptedAlgorithms [...],ssh-rsa

But disable after becuase it's unsafe

  • pubkey needs to be in pem format:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 1024 -m pem
