Generating keys with OpenSSH on macOS

Prerequisite: OpenSSH

Every macOS install comes with its own implementation of OpenSSH, so you don’t need to install any third-party software to use it. Just open a Terminal window and jump in! Because of this, you can use the same commands as specified in the on the “Generating keys with OpenSSH” section to access the cluster and transfer files.

Generating a public/private key pair

Generating a public/private key pair is identical to what is described for the linux client, that is, by using the ssh-keygen command in a Terminal window.
