Once an SSH key has been created, the ssh-copy-id command can be used to install it as an authorized key on the server. Once the key has been authorized for SSH, it grants access to the server without a password.
Use a command like the following to copy SSH key:
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/mykey user@host
This logs into the server host, and copies keys to the server, and configures them to grant access by adding them to the authorized_keys file. The copying may ask for a password or other authentication for the server.
Only the public key is copied to the server. The private key should never be copied to another machine.
