Don’t Be Fooled! AWS and Openstack Show Different Fingerprints of Imported Public Key28 Jul 2015
Don’t be fooled! AWS and Openstack are fingerprinting an imported keypair differently.
AWS uses the equivalent of:
openssl rsa -in id_rsa -pubout -outform DER | openssl md5 -c
while Openstack uses ssh-keygen:
ssh-keygen -q -l -f id_rsa
They could end up showing different values for the fingerprint of exactly the same public key.
