Convert X.509 Public Key for use with SSH

This page provides a facility to convert an exitsing X.509 or PEM-format public key to the format required for use in an SSH access list. For example

-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----
MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQC9gGwi13P4v9yyYs8dukGXFsN3
x+aIMeyRd8dziSK5FXOmJlYZmXR3QkFOrIVnt+marP+C1aeNzTKnB/bGj0eDrnG/
zDFtgOsn2LkLE1XdtpqmhSE0VpSRoEgJQj0mQh0bjpdaMmDEkRLespsoArNrlu9y
MWSey1QBslNZV4YNZQIDAQAB
-----END PUBLIC KEY----- 

becomes

ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAAAgQC9gGwi13P4v9yyYs8dukGXFsN3x
+aIMeyRd8dziSK5FXOmJlYZmXR3QkFOrIVnt+marP+C1aeNzTKnB/bGj0eDrnG/zD
FtgOsn2LkLE1XdtpqmhSE0VpSRoEgJQj0mQh0bjpdaMmDEkRLespsoArNrlu9yMWS
ey1QBslNZV4YNZQ== my@email.address

Just copy and paste your entire public key text, then click CONVERT to produce the SSH key string. You can then copy and paste this into an authorized_keys file on a server.

Note that Zen Solutions does not inspect or retain any data which you submit - it is only used to generate the SSH key.
