Once upon a time, passwords were like efficient guards who protected our digital landscapes. But, let’s just face it. Passwords are now breakable even if they are created sophisticatedly.
Therefore, using Secure Shell (SSH) Keys is a smart way of reinforcing server access security. SSH keys give way to a smart method of logging into a cloud server with SSH. The problem with a password is that it can be cracked through brute force attacks. On the other hand, deciphering SSH keys is not an easy task.
SSH keys work in pair of Public and Private keys. Both contain two long strings of characters, where Public Key can be placed on any server of choice made by a client that owns the private key. If there is a match between the two, the system opens up without a password.
So, what’s different on Cloudways when it comes to SSH Keys?
Well, we have simplified the process and removed the hassle in setting up the Public SSH key by using the Command Line Interface. On Cloudways, you can easily assign your Public SSH key from the Cloud Console itself.
