Why Do I Need an SSH Key?

SSH keys are access credentials that are used in the SSH protocol.

Since it is highly likely that you will be using SSH connections on a daily basis, it is important that your connections are secure.

SSH keys allow you to authenticate SSH connections and they offer strong encryption. Some users might even find it faster and more convenient to use SSH keys, especially when they are required to connect to many different servers regularly.
