Export Public Keys

You can export plain text public keys from keys stored in the Key agent.

To export a plain text public key

  1. Select the public key that you want to export.

  2. Choose File > Export Public Key.

    The agent exports the public key for the currently selected key.

    NOTE:The Key Agent exports keys using the native format by default.

  3. (Optional) Select Save in OpenSSH format to save to the format used by OpenSSH servers.


  • If you want to upload a public key to a Secure Shell server, you can use the Upload button to do this in a single step; you do not need to export the public key first. The upload utility automatically determines the correct key format for the server you specify.

  • Export Public Key is not available if the Key Agent is locked.
