My Project - Concepts
Each Organization has at least one associated Project. At the time of account creation this Project is called default. The default Project takes on the Organization ID. Therefore, the default status cannot be transferred to other Projects, nor can the default Project’s name be altered.
A Scaleway resource is either a product or a feature in the Scaleway Ecosystem. Examples of resources include Instances, Private Networks, Kubernetes Kapsule and Flexible IPs, to name a few.
An SSH Key (Secure Shell Key) allows passwordless connection to an Instance. An SSH Key is generated by creating an RSA key pair, consisting of two elements:
- a sensitive identification key, (aka private key) which must be stored securely
- a public key which is uploaded to the Scaleway interface.
The public key is kept in your Scaleway account and transferred to the Instance during the boot process, while the identification key is kept securely on your local computer. When connecting to the Instance via SSH, a trusted connection to the machine is established using the key pair.
