Description Neil Darlow 2001-11-08 03:52:55 EST
Description of Problem:
Protocol Version 2 adds new hosts to known_hosts2 using RSA key

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new host to known_hosts2 by SSH to unknown system

Actual Results:
The .ssh/known_hosts2 entry has a ssh-rsa encoded public key

Expected Results:
The .ssh/known_hosts2 entry should have a ssh-dss encoded public key

Additional Information:
Each end of connection running 2.9p2-9 on Red Hat 7.2
Server has an /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key and /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key.pub
Performing the same action against a FreeBSD 2.6 server gets a ssh-dss
public key in .ssh/known_hosts2
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-03-07 12:12:04 EST
OpenSSH versions 2.9 and up also support RSA keys for SSH2, so this is expected
