ADMIN: Install user key to remote server
In order to give users access to each remote server their SSH public key will need to be installed.
-> The user will send their PUBLIC key to you (id_rsa.pub)
Logon to the server using the admin user
Navigate to '.ssh' directory of the 'Staff' user
OPTIONAL: If you do NOT see a .ssh directory you need to create it
Move into the .ssh directory
Edit/Create the file 'authorized_keys'
sudo vi authorized_keys
Create a new line in the file (at the bottom) and add the following
ssh-rsa AAAAB3N...................ZMBjl sacha-lewis@ubuntu
Change the permissions to lock down the file (first time only)
sudo chown undostaff:undostaff authorized_keys
sudo chmod 600 authorized_keys
The new user is now able to login using SSH keys
