Is there a way to find out which public rsa key belongs to which secret key?

I have two pairs lying around, and would like to know ehich one is which.


ssh-keygen can show you the public key of a given private key:

ssh-keygen -y -f <PRIVATE-KEY>

You can then compare the output with your public keys.
