Yes -- the public keys generated by OpenSSH and SSH Corp versions of ssh(1) are in different formats. You can use ssh-keygen(1) to convert a public key produced by the SSH Corp product into a format the OpenSSH can cope with: % ssh-keygen -i -f ssh-corp-key.pub > openssh-key.pub Or you can got the other way round: % ssh-keygen -e -f openssh-key.pub > ssh-corp-key.pub ('i' is for import, 'e' is for export). You want to do the second, and then copy the transformed public key into the authorized_keys file on the target host.
