Can I display the fingerprint of an RSA key in IOS?

Unanswered Question
Nov 25th, 2008

Hi all,

Is there a way to display the fingerprint of an RSA key in IOS, so it can be matched against the fingerprint displayed by PuTTY the first time I connect to the device?

I know that this has been discussed before and no one has come up with an answer. I'm hoping that more recent versions of IOS will have implemented this.

Thanks,

- Steve

I have this problem too.

Steve,

I believe you are looking for the "show crypto key mypubkey rsa" command.

HTH,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks! However, that command does not show the fingerprint of the key.

Thanks,

Steve,

I am not sure that is possible. That command only shows the public key on the local device. I believe that info is stored on the private-config file that is not accessible.
