    Well, the PuTTY team has requested I seek support here first. So, sorry
    if this is slightly off-topic. Fortunately, PuTTY is open-source...

    I've got a bunch of SSH public keys for various servers that I would
    like to import into PuTTY, so I don't have to reverify all these
    servers' fingerprints.

    PuTTY stores its keys in the registry
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHo stKeys].
    Unfortunately, PuTTY seems to encode the public key in hexadecimal
    before storing it in the registry. It also appears to not be a straight
    character-by-character conversion, otherwise I might not be seeking support.

    All I need to know is, what kind of encoding process is performed on the
    public key before it gets stored in the registry? When I know this, I
    can hopefully manually do the conversion and put the results into the
    registry.

    Thanks.
