~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub my public key is stored as:
ssh-rsa magicmagicmagicmagic...magicmagic username@hostname
When publishing my public key, should I include the
username@hostname bit? Can I replace it with something else? My concerns are that:
- I may want to change the label for vanity purposes (
super@wishihadbetterhostname) - but I don't want to mess things up by doing this (for example, if a common tool assumes this convention is upheld)
- I'm concerned that I'm making it that much easier to get onto my machine by giving away my username and hostname!
