How do i display the fingerprint of my ssh key?



  • Man page for ssh-keygen.

         -E fingerprint_hash
    	     Specifies the hash algorithm used when displaying key finger‐
    	     prints.  Valid options are: “md5” and “sha256”.  The default is
    	     “sha256”.
    
    $ ssh-keygen -E md5 -lf ./sounds_rsa
    4096 MD5:54:50:7e:00:bf:e1:81:c6:6a:6d:b9:93:99:e6:bf:45 sounds@coastsystems (RSA)
    

    The default without the -E option is sha256, we also tried sha512 and it produced a fingerprint.
