server (Launchpad.net by default) and append them to the current user's
authorized_keys file (or some other specified file)
ssh-import-id [options] USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]
-h | --help usage
-e | --environment use the current environment (by default, all envi-
ronment variables are cleaned before importing ids)
-o | --output F write output to file 'F' (default ~/.ssh/autho-
rized_keys, use "-" for standard out)
This utility will securely contact a public keyserver (https://launch-
pad.net by default) and retrieve one or more user's public keys, and
append these to the current user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.
The system administrator can change the source URL used by
ssh-import-id(1) by editing the configuration file,
/etc/ssh/ssh_import_id, which is sourced to obtain the value of URL.
By default, URL="https://launchpad.net/~%s/+sshkeys". Note that this
url really MUST be a secure, https url with a valid, signed certificate
or else your system will be vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks!
The "%s" will be populated by ssh-import-id(1) with the value(s) of
USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n].
The -e option will be necessary if you need to use a proxy defined in
$https_proxy, for instance.
