If you’re someone who is a regular user of AWS (Amazon Web Services), it’s not required to tell you how crucial the services are for you, or, how significant it is for you to access AWS EC2 hosting Server. A lot of times, the users find themselves in quite a big trouble when they are not able to access the server or the services. This could happen due to many reasons, but one of the primary ones is losing the SSH Key Pair. Make no mistake – losing the key pair isn’t quite like forgetting the password of your email account. Retrieving it can prove to be a tricky process.
Many users don’t quite understand the sophistication behind the SSH Key Pair, and how it works. As a result, instead of keeping it safe, they treat it like a set of login information of a regular email account. The motive of this content is to inform the users about SSH Key Pair and AWS in general, and the things they should do provided that they happen to lose the keys. SSH in general stands for Secure Shell Protocol, which in layman language is an encryption and decryption mechanism. Amazon uses 2048-bit SSH-2 RSA keys as parts of their Key Pair.
SSH Key Pair and its Significance in AWS
After purchasing the AWS console, at the time of set up or installation, you’re offered SSH Key Pair. These are two keys, one public, and the other private. Amazon uses the public key to encrypt the data, and to access it, you have to decrypt it using the private key. Now, keeping the security of the users in mind, Amazon tends to get rid of the private key after it’s been passed on to the user. The key is not saved in any form on Amazon’s servers. It is therefore quite essential for the users to keep their SSH Key Pair in a secured manner as it can’t be retrieved.
Since the SSH Key Pair is used to encrypt and decrypt your login information, after you’ve lost it, you can’t access their services or the AWS EC2 Server. And since the key, the private one, has been deleted from their servers as well, you can’t get it back in a traditional fashion. The only way to get back your Key Pair is to reset the console altogether. Anyone who gets their hands on your private key can easily decrypt your login information, use the AWS and get inside AWS EC2 Servers posing as you. Simply speaking, the threats are numerous.
