SSH Authentication with Github

Step 1

Start by signing into Github.

Step 2

Click on the top left icon Settings SSH keys Add SSH key

Enter a title you'll remember. Titles are a friendly way to identify which key is associated to a computer. If you replace your computer, you'll want to delete the key that is associated with it.

Now we'll copy your SSH key from your Terminal and paste it into the Key text box. Navigate back to your terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install xclip
xclip -sel clip < ~/.ssh/
Step 3

Click "Add Key" and enter your Github password.
