comment Can ssh-keygen be seeded to generate the same key?
This is a valid question. The seeds could be generated from a condition, like a hostname or MAC address. If the public key has been put in authorized_keys on other servers, if the machine is rebuilt for any reason, the key can be regenerated from the hostname (without keys having to be stored somewhere), and it will retain access to those other servers. I'd also be interested in an answer to how this may be done.
