Howto: Get SSH Key Fingerprint


Recently Github was hit by a Public Key Security Vulnerability and asked all users to review their keys.

Then they showed me the following fingerprint (80:01:12:a0:5e:59:40:cb:7a:dd:60:8e:75:86:c2:d7) and asked me to review. The the question was, how do I get the fingerprint of my public ssh key.

ssh@ssh:~$ ssh-keygen -l -f ~/.ssh/*.pub
1024 80:01:12:a0:5e:59:40:cb:7a:dd:60:8e:75:86:c2:d7 (DSA)
