How do I require a private key for SSH connection?
Hi there, newbie here. I followed a guide via digitalocean for generating an SSH key for my droplet server. However when I log into the server via putty it does not require me to authenticate with my key and I can log in without it. How do I make it so that my key is required for logging in via, say, Putty?
Thanks and best wishes
