converting ppk to pem in Ubuntu Linux


We have seen how to convert pem to ppk and how to convert ppk tp pem on windows systems. But how to do this on Linux? In this post we will see how this can be done in Linux command line. We will be using Ubuntu Linux in this example. We will be using the tool puttygen to do this.

Installing puttygen:
sudo apt-get install putty-tools

Converting pem to ppk
puttygen key.pem -o key.ppk

Converting ppk to pem
puttygen key.ppk -O private-openssh -o key.pem
