ssh-import-id(1)                  ssh-import                  ssh-import-id(1)

       ssh-import-id  -  retrieve  one  or more public keys from a public key-
       server and append them to the current user's authorized_keys  file  (or
       some other specified file)

       ssh-import-id [options] USER_ID_1 [gh:USER_ID_2] ... [lp:USER_ID_n]

       ssh-import-id-lp USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]

       ssh-import-id-gh USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]

        -h | --help        usage
        -o  |  --output  F    write  output to file 'F' (default ~/.ssh/autho-
       rized_keys, use "-" for standard out)
        -r | --remove      remove keys from authorized keys file 'F'
        -u | --useragent U append U to the user agent string
        PROTO:USER_ID      Protocol can be 'lp' for, or 'gh' for

       This  utility will securely contact a public keyserver and retrieve one
       or more user's public keys, and append  these  to  the  current  user's
       ~/.ssh/authorized_keys  file,  standard  output  or any other specified
       output file.

       User IDs can be prepended by a protocol:

        - lp: to use
        - gh: to use

       If the protocol is not explicitly specified,  then  ssh-import-id  will
       read  a URL variable string from /etc/ssh/ssh_import_id as installed by
       your package manager and configured by your system administrator.   You
       can  override  this  locally  by exporting the string you want in a URL
       environment variable.  If all of these are empty, then the protocol  is
       assumed  to  be  "lp:", which was the original target implementation of
       this tool.

       Any keys added will be "labled" with a trailing comment, "# ssh-import-
       id  PROTO:USER_ID".   Revoking  keys  will  first look for lines in the
       authorized keys file ending with that label.
