SSH into a Docker Cloud-managed node

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

You can add a public SSH key to the authorized_keys file in each of your Linux nodes, so that you can log into the nodes using SSH without providing a password.

The quickest way to do this is to create the SSH keys, then run our dockercloud/authorizednodes utility image. Follow the instructions at that link to add the public SSH key to each node.

Afterward, from a machine which has the private key available, you can SSH into any of the nodes without providing a password.
