getting rsa key fingerprints

getting rsa key fingerprints

getting rsa key fingerprints


I can get fingerprints of all keys authorized in authorized_keys but only using temporal file (here "line"), like:
cat au*s|while read a;do echo $a >line;ssh-keygen -l -f line;done

(unfortunatelly, command: "ssh-keygen -l -f authorized_keys" ignored >1 lines)

1) can the ssh-keygen -l be fed somehow without temporaly file?
2) or, could openssl be used for this job too?

RE: getting rsa key fingerprints

temporal file???

"temporal" means "Related to time" do you mean temporary file

RE: getting rsa key fingerprints

by temp file I meant auxiliary file used later for -f parameter of ssh-keygen

RE: getting rsa key fingerprints

So yes, temporary file.
