Server fingerprints

Linux servers and will replace the old unix servers.

Two types of keys are available on both the servers ( and ED25519 and RSA. In addition, an SSH client can use two keys for calculating the fingerprints of different hashes: SHA256 of MD5. Below are different types of fingerprints that the SSH software can display. PuTTY, for example, will probably show the RSA MD5 fingerprint.

Note: the ssh client shows the key in one of the forms listed below, which must match. The key forms not shown by client can be neglected. (
