ssh-keygen is a Linux command for generating ssh keys.

Just typing the command without any arguments will generate a new key in ~/.ssh/id_rsa (a prompt offers to let you change this), with an optional passphrase (also queried by prompt).

It can also be used to remove conflicting entries from the .known-hosts file.
