Thread: ssh-keygen only

  1. ssh-keygen only

    Hi,

    Can I install ssh-keygen only without all the sslopen (which again depends
    on perl). I would like to do that to get a chance to create a public key on
    our embedded pc 104 system. It would be nice if there was no need for the
    whole deal with it's libraries and binaries to safe some space.

    Thanks,
    Ron

    You can install ssh-keygen with only its supporting libraries ("ldd
    ssh-keygen" will tell you what those are). ssh-keygen requires OpenSSL's
    libcrypto, however whether or not that appears in the list will depend
    on how you built OpenSSL. It will also need some system level stuff
    such as an entropy source, which is usually /dev/random or /dev/urandom
    on most modern systems. Just copy the binary and the libraries ldd
    shows you and you should be good to go.

    I believe OpenSSL requires Perl only at build time.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
    usually comes from bad judgement.
