SSH Public Key

Hi All,

I searched for this information everywhere but coulnd't find a definite answer so I was hoping to find one here. I know I can genereate and manually add public key to the router but can I use that key for my ssh connection? For example if I generate a key pair and copy public key to the router, can I set up the router to use that public key when allowing an ssh connection? So nobody elses but my public key would be allowed to connect to the router. I know I can genereate the rsa key pairs on the router and copy them between the two with the "crypto key pubkey-chain rsa" but can I apply that public key to ssh? Thanks as always!

Re: SSH Public Key

This is NOT possible on Cisco IOS and ASA, to my knowledge. If you want to achieve something like that, use other vendors such as Nokia or Checkpoint Secureplatform. Those products have full-blown ssh functionalties
