SSH Keys Module

Sage Imel

A concat based ssh authorized_keys management solution created mostly to work around ssh_authorized_keys not being able to purge old keys. Also since authorized keys are managed as file-lines you are not restricted to the subset of ssh authorized_keys functionality that the ssh_authorized_keys resource imposes.



Quick Start

This module has been tested on Ubuntu though it is intended to work on any Unix/Linux like supported playform.

Example Usage

Managing Keys

include ssh_keys

  manage_ssh_dir => true,
  key_line => 'ssh-rsa long-key-here foo@bar',
  user     => 'foo',
