Retrieve (or create) your public key

Your public key is generally located in the default location and can be retrieved with the following command:

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub


If this file does not exist it may be that you've not previously created a public key, but you can create one with the following command:

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Get public key added to NGAP

Use the following link to create an NASD ticket to have your public key added to the bastion. Have your public key handy, you'll need to provide it in your NASD ticket.

NOTE: You can continue to perform the rest of the steps you just wont be able to connect to your jumpbox (or your bastion) until your public key is added by NGAP.
