You can add SSH Keys to your Hypernode via the Control Panel by following the next steps:

  1. Log in to your control panel
  2. Select your Hypernode ( under ‘My Hypernodes’ and click on the Go button
  3. On the next page, click on Add SSH key. You will reach the SSH keymanager.

  1. Paste the content of your public key into the public key field and give your SSH key a name.
  2. Click on the Add SSH key button to add the key to the Keymanager
  3. Your key is now added to your Hypernode.

Repeat the above steps if you would like to add more keys.

A couple of things to keep in mind

  • The following SSH public key types in the control panel are supported: RSA keys >= 2048 bits (*), ECDSA and Ed25519 keys.
  • DSA and RSA keys < 2048 bits * will not be permitted because they are not secure.
  • You will be prompted with a clear message if there is a problem with your key.
