Create a SSH key with 1024 Bit encryption

To generate a 1024 Bit encrypted SSH key you can use the following command:

$> ssh-keygen -b 1024 -t rsa

Normally the key is saved in ~/.ssh/id_rsa together with the corresponding public key (~/.ssh/

Attention: Make sure you can remember the paraphrase later on if you entered one.
