Official websites do not use .rip
We are an unofficial archive, replace .rip by .gov in the URL to access the official website. Access our document index here.


We are building a provable archive!
A lock (Dot gov) or https:// don't prove our archive is authentic, only that you securely accessed it. Note that we are working to fix that :)

Known Hosts File


  A file associated with a specific account that contains one or more host keys. Each host key is associated with an SSH server address (IP or hostname) so that the server can be authenticated when a connection is initiated. The user or administrator who makes the first connection to an SSH server is responsible for verifying that the host key presented by that server is the actual key (not a rogue key) before it gets placed in the known hosts file.
