bash-3.2$ ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 2 jpyeron mkpasswd 0 Mar 3 22:13 .
drwxr-xr-x 10 jpyeron mkpasswd 0 Mar 3 21:49 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 jpyeron mkpasswd 668 Mar 3 22:13 id_dsa
-rw-r--r-- 1 jpyeron mkpasswd 604 Mar 3 22:14 id_dsa.pub
-rw-r--r-- 1 jpyeron mkpasswd 1671 Mar 3 22:13 id_rsa
-rw-r--r-- 1 jpyeron mkpasswd 396 Mar 3 22:14 id_rsa.pub
-rw-r--r-- 1 jpyeron mkpasswd 3614 Feb 21 11:47 known_hosts
