Question On Private/public Key

Discussion in 'Security' started by ORiN, Feb 17, 2013.

    I am currently using private/public key for my storage server to retrieve daily backups from my VPS. I intend to get a new VPS and would like to clone the current VPS and restore it on the new VPS. Will the private/public key arrangement remain intact?

    Yes, if you clone the VPS, the keys will be copied onto the new clone as well. Out of curiosity, can you let us know as to how the cloning is going to be performed ?

    My VPS provider appears to be moving the files manually from what I understand. It appears that cloning will not be done.

    Are you using the private/public key with SSL? If so, a new certificate may need to be issued along with a new private/public key. Not entirely sure how this would work though.
