Public/Private Key Credentials
Authentication Schemes and Credentials can be created, edit and applied directly within the relevant Edit Connector page under Enable Authentication.
This type of credential is a key pair (public/private) that uses public-key cryptography. Private keys are secret and known only to users. Public keys are distributed to hosts. Together, the private key identifies and authorizes the user to the host that possesses the public key.
The keys must be entered as PEM format, for example:
