Setup git push with SSH

Generate SSH KEY with ssh-keygen

ssh-keygen -t rsa -C ""

Note : In local machines we may have multiple ssh keys, better to create the specific rsa. Example : Enter file in which to save the key (/home/ubuntu/.ssh/id_rsa): /home/ubuntu/.ssh/github_rsa


Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/ubuntu/.ssh/id_rsa): /home/ubuntu/.ssh/github_rsa
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): 
Enter same passphrase again: 
Your identification has been saved in /home/ubuntu/.ssh/github_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /home/ubuntu/.ssh/
The key fingerprint is:
SHA256:vddx6bSnZdfSM0/6pImd5l+yiycMZRMetgp70NuCcRcM *******
The key's randomart image is:

 cat /home/ubuntu/.ssh/

O/P ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAkjnHIUF76AABAQC/iLoHDq+6Bz5m5ED1TezxtCeW4U7eZueEqFX2eMo/BRQLVLzIMP7YyiYBR0xX57MgQ4cVodJV8pM0PYrSGSI1lQ5POSMrY4RDrH+KCVbLpifZAjaI94IKJtjnRm9eynk11g9DCg3z+OlxXmBBs1AO/zzqBXBoekfU753bD4u1kjdfngjt*703yhycHiq6Iis9B2FHbV1Yov9ofswnZxh/xX7gXghLo4bdjpwfgDCRlUl4VUf7AeMY3ACwYsiEs1P6R0dk1SUITgkP8D6pjmaxbroWLex43wkUxuS+nKJ9/kw7AmWnupBrUi0gfYzNlfugniuwJI55vkOyhCF7 ****

2. Go to github account settings page

Github Settings

3. Click on New SSH key

4. Add title and paste the copied ssh key from the local

5. Test SSH

ssh -T

O/P The authenticity of host ‘ (’ can’t be established. RSA key fingerprint is SHA256:nThbg6kXUpJWGl7E1IGOCspRomTxdCARLviKw6E5SY8. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added ‘,’ (RSA) to the list of known hosts. Hi JinnaBalu!
