I have an existing public/private key pair, the private key is password protected, the encryption may be either RSA or DSA. These keys are the kind you generate with
ssh-keygen and generally store under
I'd like to change the private key's password. How do I go about it, on a standard unix shell?
Also, how do I simply remove the password? Just change it to empty?
(I know, they call it a passphrase. Pedantic wimps.)
