· The process outlined below will generate RSA keys, a classic and widely-used type of encryption algorithm. The PuTTY keygen tool offers several other algorithms – DSA, ECDSA, Ed25519, and SSH-1 (RSA).. If you require a different encryption algorithm, select the desired option under the Parameters heading before generating the key pair.. 1. In the PuTTY Key Generator window, click …
To generate an SSH key in Windows 10: Ensure the Windows 10 OpenSSH client is installed. Run “ssh-keygen” in Command Prompt and follow the instructions to generate your key.
But even without Ubuntu, SSH keys can also be generated with the free and open source OpenSSH client built into Windows 10 or with PuTTY for Windows 8.1 and earlier. Over the following few steps, we’ll guide you through the process of generating SSH keys using Ubuntu on …

On Windows machines, the freeware open-source software PuTTY is the de-facto standard when it comes to SSH and Telnet. With Windows 10, Microsoft has finally listened to its users after years of them requesting an SSH client and server.
· The ssh -T command uses the Windows 10 agent so all appears to be correct, but it won’t behave the same in Git. This is due to the fact Git is using it’s own ssh agent, not the Windows 10 agent that we’ve added our keys to. We need to tell Git to use the Windows SSH agent instead of it’s own. We do this by updating the git config.
· Change into the .ssh directory C:\Users\joetest\.ssh. To create the keys, type: ssh-keygen.exe. When prompted for a password, type apassword to complete the process. When finished, the output looks similar to: Ssh-keygen.exe Generating public/private rsa key pair.
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 ssh-keygen -t dsa ssh-keygen -t ecdsa -b 521 ssh-keygen -t ed25519 Specifying the File Name. Normally, the tool prompts for the file in which to store the key. However, it can also be specified on the command line using the -f
· This post is a setup guide and introduction to ssh client and server on Windows 10. Microsoft has a native OpenSSH client AND server on Windows. They are standard (and in stable versions) on Windows 10 since the 1809 "October Update". This guide should helpful to both Windows and Linux users who want better interoperability.
