Support elliptic curve SSH keys

aeris shared this idea 6 years ago
In Progress

Currently, only RSA keys are usable, not the ECDSA (OpenSSH 5.7) or ED25519 (OpenSSH 6.5) format.

Hi !


Test for ED25519 on 2.3.4. Doesn’t work, key format is unknow.

  1. "message" : "Cannot parse privateKey: Unsupported key format",
  2. "stack" : "Error: Cannot parse privateKey: Unsupported key forma" +

    "at Client.connect (/opt/mongobooster/resources/app.asar/node_modules/ssh2/lib/client.js:224:13" +

Regards,

Hi,


It took me some time to find this issue https://github.com/openssl/openssl/issues/487

The package we use depends on openssl. So we might not be able to fix this before openssl supported this format.

In this case, will be better to call SSH directly instead of a custom client.

See https://mongobooster.useresponse.com/topic/call-openssh%C2%A0client-directly-instead-of-embedded-ssh%C2%A0one

Will be more compatible and usable in all case (currently I have to trick mongobooster because one of my mongo is under a bounce and so I need full-featured SSH to be able to connect).
