Generating a new SSH key


SSH is in early access.

Checking for existing keys

Here’s an example command that will list the files in your .ssh directory, if they exist.

ls -al ~/.ssh

By default, the filenames of supported SSH public keys for Render are one of the following:

  • id_rsa.pub
  • id_ed25519.pub

If you don’t see either of these files or if you receive an error that ~/.ssh doesn’t exist, you may want to generate a new key.

Generating a key

Here’s an example command that will generate a key:

ssh-keygen -t ed25519

After you’ve generated your key, the next step will be to add the key to your account.
