Hi ,

While converting open ssh private key to tectia server private key using the below command

ssh-keygen-g3 --import-private-key "$HOME"/.ssh/id_dsa "$HOME"/.ssh2/id_dsa_ssh2

I am getting following error "Can't recognize private key file ".

Could you please provide me information how to convert my opsn ssh private key to tectia server.

I m using tectia MFT Event 6.1 to upload public key.I m placing my public and private keys under C:\Documents and Settings\s-SshMft\Application Data\SSH\UserKeys.But keys are not appearing in key and certificate list.So,I haven't able to upload OPEN SSH public key through MFT Event. So, I m trying to convert public and private keys compatible with tectia and upload it. I m able to convert public key and but not able to convert private key.

Could you let me know is it right approach to upload my open ssh keys

Is the private key passphrase protected? I believe the --import-private-key only works for unencrypted private keys.

Can you edit your answer to explain what is it that you're trying to do by converting the key? If you're using a recent enough (6.0 and newer) version of Tectia, both client and server allow the use of openssh keys without the need to convert them.
