Description

The sub-commands of doctl compute ssh-key manage the SSH keys on your account.

DigitalOcean allows you to add SSH public keys to the interface so that you can embed your public key into a Droplet at the time of creation. Only the public key is required to take advantage of this functionality. Note that this command does not add, delete, or otherwise modify any ssh keys that may be on existing Droplets.
