I have a newely provisioned AWS instance. I am trying to install an application using the
pip install git+ssh syntax
The authenticity of host 'github.com (188.8.131.52)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 16:27:ac:a5:76:28:2d:36:63:1b:56:4d:eb:df:a6:48.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
-o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no
You can grab the fingerprint via
ssh-keyscan and put it into the
known_hosts file yourself.
ssh-keyscan -t rsa github.com >>~/.ssh/known_hosts
This way ssh is already happy with the key and you don't have to remember to add options every time.
But if you'd just rather ignore anything fingerprint-related, it should also work if you add the option in your
~/.ssh/config under the
github.com host (or in general, but that seems riskier)
Host github.com StrictHostKeyChecking no
