Crear carpeta para llaves SSH

You have to create the .ssh directory and the authorized_keys file the first time.

Create the .ssh directory

mkdir ~/.ssh

Set the right permissions

chmod 700 ~/.ssh

Create the authorized_keys file

touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

The permissions are important! It won’t work without the right permissions!

Now you can add the public key to the authorized_keys file:

cat ~/.ssh/ >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

You have to add the public key of your computer to the authorized_keys file of the computer you want to access using SSH Keys!

As terdon mentioned you can also just use this command:

ssh-copy-id user@host

This will put your (in your ~/.ssh directory) in the remote computer’s authorized_keys file, creating the .ssh directory and authorized_keys file with the right permissions if necessary.
