ssh-import-id

       server (Launchpad.net by default) and append them to the current user's
       authorized_keys file (or some other specified file)


SYNOPSIS
       ssh-import-id [options] USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]


OPTIONS
        -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)


DESCRIPTION
       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.
