rsa local-key-pair create

rsa local-key-pair create


The rsa local-key-pair create command generates the local RSA host and server key pairs.

By default, the local RSA host and server key pairs are not configured.

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

To implement secure data exchange between the server and client, run this command to generate a local key pair.


If the RSA key pair exists, the system prompts you to confirm whether to replace the original key pair.

After you run this command, the system prompts you to enter the number of bits in the host key. The difference between the bits in the server and host key pairs must be at least 128 bits. For a server or host key pair, the minimum length is 512 bits, the maximum length is 2048 bits, and the default length is 2048 bits.

The RSA key pair whose length is less than 1024 digits is insecure and therefore not recommended to use.

To successfully log in to the SSH server, a local RSA key pair must be configured and generated. Before performing other SSH configurations, you must use the rsa local-key-pair create command to generate a local key pair.

After you run this command, the generated key pair is saved in the device and will not be lost after the device restarts.


# Generate the local RSA host and server key pairs.

[Huawei] rsa local-key-pair create
The key name will be: Host
The range of public key size is (512 ~ 2048).
NOTES: If the key modulus is greater than 512,
       It will take a few minutes.
Input the bits in the modulus[default = 2048]:2048
