Is it possible to generate other key types besides RSA?

This is for use with ssh.
encrypt the encryption, never mind my brain hurts.

    When I remember correctly there is RSA and DSA. I looked it up again and I guess DSA was developed by the National Institute of Science and Technology.

    Both forms have their own algorithm and DSA can not be used to encrypt, only to sign whereas RSA can be used to encrypt and sign.

    Make sure whatever device you are using it on will support it.

    Hope this helps.....

    sorry I meant can cisco devices create keys besides RSA keys...

    I have checked countless devices and all I am coming up with is RSA.


    sorry I was not more specific
