 +  * Generate the keys using the command ''​ssh-keygen -t dsa''​ and follow the prompts. If you're going to use the shared key to log into a system where user identities shouldn'​t be shared (i.e iVEC) save the key file as something like ''/​home/​observer/​.ssh/​id_dsa_username_galaxy'',​ and use a non-blank passphrase 
 +  * scp the file to the target computer (which you want to be able to access using the shared key) with ''​scp .ssh/​id_dsa_username_galaxy''​ 
 +  * ssh into the target system (using your usual password) and include the shared key in the ''​.ssh/​authorized_keys file''​ with a command like ''​cat id_dsa_username_galaxy >> .ssh/​authorized_keys''​ 
 +  * You can now use the shared key to log in to the target system. If you want to avoid having to enter a password/​phrase repeatedly, use ''​ssh-agent bash''​ and ''​ssh-add .ssh/​id_dsa_username_galaxy''​. You'll have to enter your passphrase once this way.
