How to verify droplet's SSH public key fingerprint?
Before SSHing to a droplet for the first time, is there a way to verify the public key fingerprint? This question was asked last year, but there wasn’t any good way to do this back then. Any updates?
As the previous asker suggested, “Ideally it would be part of the response body when a new droplet is created or have its own API call”. The fingerprint could also be displayed in the web interface for each droplet.
