Is routerOS supporting modern SSH?

Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:52 pm

I am wondering whether the SSH server bundled with the rest of the RouterOS software is modern enough to support elliptic curve keys.

Any idea?

UPDATE
Neither Ed25519 nor ECDSA are supported. I tried to import both, but failed.
What a pity!

There's never a stupid question. But often stupid answers.
And, yes I do used search engines. This is why I am here.

Not sure your particular target but in general yes, you can use /system ssh xx.xx.xx.xx from Mikrotik router terminal to establish an SSH session to the IP address that the router can reach.

My particolar target is ... elliptic curve keys.
I already know SSH is working fairly well.
I already know RSA keys are accepted.
But I'm asking about ECDSA and/or EdDSA/Ed25519 keys.
Not about client or server general availability.

You would have put all these in the original post and perhaps in the general forum instead of beginner basics.

Sorry cannot help you there . Based on your signature, I don't really want to help you anymore.

I did put them in the original post.
They are mentioned between the words "support" and "keys".
I don't need any help any more on this topic, though.
Also this is in the original post.
