Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-10-07 12:05:18 UTC
I am running  2.2.0p1-2 but this also seems to occur with 2.1.1p4-1.

While ssh-keygen -l -f .ssh/identity.pub works fine by printing the
fingerprint and id, it does not work for dsa keys.

Running ssh-keygen -d -l -f .ssh/id_dsa.pub produces the message
".ssh/id_dsa.pub is not a valid key file".

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-10-10 21:47:51 UTC
The ssh-keygen tool doesn't know how to read DSA keys.  We're testing a possible
fix.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-11-20 17:50:09 UTC
The fix appears to work correctly and will be included in the upcoming errata.
