What is an SSH key?

An SSH key pair consists of a private and public keys used in a public SSH key authentication method. In this authentication method, one file (known as the private key) is typically held at the client side and the other file (known as the public key) is stored at the server side. No 2 pairs of SSH keys are alike.
