SSH Keys are used to
ssh servers instead of passwords. They can also be used as a persistence method.
Key pairs are generated by using the
ssh-keygen command. I recommend generating a specific key pair for CTF's instead of using your usual key pair.
$ ssh-keygen Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa): id_ctf Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in id_ctf Your public key has been saved in id_ctf.pub The key fingerprint is: SHA256:axD9VTczMb4ej/MYNaXe456hucpo/W7x0u5UA8Nd76I user@host The key's randomart image is: +---[RSA 3072]----+ | .*+| | . .+o.B| | . . =+o5| | . . o Bo+o| | . S . + +=+| | . Q ....==| | = + E+=..| | o .o.4= | | oo++ .| +----[SHA256]-----+
This will generate 2 files
id_ctf = This is the private key and should not be shared.
id_ctf.pub = This is the public key, this is what should be added to the targets
As the private key is meant to be private most
ssh clients will check the permissions to ensure that the key is secure. The file should only be accessible by the user, usual 0600 in octal format. If required you can run the following command to fix permissions..
chmod 0600 id_ctf
ssh clients will usually by default use the
id_rsa key file in the users home directory. If you want to use a different key then you need to pass the
ssh -i id_ctf user@target
