Personal Privat Security Key for pfSense SSH LogIn
i want to create private Key for SSH-Login to pfsense gui.
i think i have to add a certificate in the cert-manager for this.
but i found one entry:
webConfigurator default …........
should i modify this cert or can i make i new own one ?
should i have to delete the default?
thanks for help
hmm ok i have try it under user-manager -> authorized-key to add my privat key for ssh login,
but it the same! i need password instead of privatkey file :(

Are you looking for the checkbox in Web GUI:
System: Advanced: Admin Access
Disable password login for Secure Shell (RSA key only)
RESOLUTION for ssh login with PRIVAT KEY inclusive passphrase! (Offensive Security Certified Professional :) )
i have make a privat key with passphrase via ssl tool in debian-linux. you can also make it in windows^^
load it into puttygen and copy the ssh-rsa output to the User Interface in pfsense User-Manager into Authorized-Key
now you can login over ssh into pfsense with your privakey structure
