How to change the SSH Passphrase

June 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Sometimes you want to change the SSH passphrase without necessarily changing the entire key (i.e without having to create a new one). This is the command to simply change the passphrase without having to create a new one:

ssh-keygen -p -P <old_Passphrase> -N <new_Passphrase> -f <private_key_file>
