How does SSH find a local key?
This is a really simple question about SSH. I’m new to this concept and struggling to figure it out.
I get that an SSH key has to be registered on the server and stored on the host computer. But how does the server find the file on the local machine? How does it know the filepath for the .pub file? I could store this key in any local folder, right?
