SSH key for OS X

When generating the SSH key, you really do want to hit enter for the default file (id_rsa). The passphrase, though is a different story. Enter a passphrase for that one that is secure.

$ ssh-keygen -t rsa Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/Users/user/.ssh/id_rsa): [enter for default] Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): [password] Enter same passphrase again: [password confirmation]
