SSH key

CDP requires that you provide a public SSH key for admin access to EC2 instances. The minimum SSH key size is 2048 bits.

You have two options:

  • Paste an existing SSH key
  • Select an SSH key that has already been uploaded in the selected AWS region
On AWS, you can create or import SSH keys in the EC2 console > Key Pairs in the specified region by using the Create Key Pair or Import Key Pair options:

For instructions on how to create or import your SSH key on AWS, refer to Creating a key pair using Amazon EC2 and Importing your own public key to Amazon EC2 in AWS documentation.
