+First of all, we have to install package called keychain. (`pacman-g2 -S
+In the next step we have to create a new key. A key stands from two
+parts, a public and a private part. It means two different files in your
+`~/.ssh/` directory.
+Your key is generated by a program called ssh-keygen. It's a part of
+openssh package. Run ssh-keygen -t dsa! You'll see something like this:
+voros...@kavics~$ ssh-keygen -t dsa
+Generating public/private dsa key pair.
+Enter file in which to save the key (/home/voroskoi/.ssh/id_dsa):
+Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
+Enter same passphrase again:
+Your identification has been saved in /home/voroskoi/.ssh/id_dsa.
+Your public key has been saved in /home/voroskoi/.ssh/
+The key fingerprint is:
+ac:47:93:29:d2:c4:e1:85:47:5c:c1:36:93:74:e9:08 voros...@kavics
+It'll generate for us the two parts of the key. The program asks where
+do you want to save the keys, it's good to simply push an enter. After
+that You have to type in the passphrase of the key two times. It's
+_really_ important to chose a hard passphrase. It should contain
+lower-/uppercase characters, digits, possibly special characters too.
+The length must be at least 10 characters! We have to type in this
+passphrase only once after every restart we shouldn't choose an easy
+If everything works fine, then we have an id_dsa and an file
+in our `~/.ssh/` directory.
+voros...@kavics~/.ssh $ ls -la

+-rw-r--r--   1 voroskoi users 230 2005-04-11 04:26 known_hosts
+Now, we would like to use our newly generated key. We have to do the
+$ scp ~/.ssh/ usern...@remote_machine:
+$ ssh usern...@remote_machine
+$ cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
+$ rm
+$ exit
+Good to know, that this time(I mean when we run scp and ssh commands) we
+can't use our key's passphrase, so we have to use our password on the
+remore_machine. If it's done without any mistake on next login the
+remote_machine will ask for our key's passphrase.
+And here comes keychain. In openssh package there is a program called
+ssh-agent. You can store keys in ssh-agent. Keychain just makes easier
+using of ssh-agent and adds some new features.
+This time i assume that we use bash. If we would like to use keychain
+with an other shell, then we can use man keychain:-) So, let's take out
+favourite editor and add the following lines to `~/.bash_profile` file:
+keychain -q id_dsa
+[ -f $HOME/.keychain/$HOSTNAME-sh ] && source $HOME/.keychain/$HOSTNAME-sh
