PuTTY Key Generator

Generate public and private keys for SSH"
A review by Flo

When you connect to a server to work in command line, usually you use Putty. Although you can use other alternatives, for an improved security it is recommended to use private keys to login, so you will not be exposed to brute force attacks. This tool is able to generate these encryption keys. This little generates both the RSA and DSA key depending on your requirement. It is easy to install and easy to use with a detailed manual in case of any reference.

This program is used with the SSH authentication protocol to create unbreakable encryption while generating the private or public key. It is also possible to use an existing key as long as you assign it a strong passphrase and key comment just as you would when generating a new RSA or DSA key. It comes with an integrated conversion functionality which allows for use of other user-preferred formats besides the original PPK format.

Securityis something that should be given utmost attention and priority while dealing with online transactions, therefore, using this key generator program is worth your try.

PuTTY Key Generator is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in ssh clients category and is available to all software users as a free download.
