Dedibox account - Concepts
Authorized SSH key
An SSH key (Secure Shell key) allows passwordless authentication on SSH sessions. 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 Dedibox interface.
The public key is kept in your Scaleway account and transferred to the Dedibox server during the installation, 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.
The billing section contains all information related to the payment of your invoices. You can update your billing method from this page and download your invoices. It also allows you to define an additional billing contact, who receives a copy of your monthly invoice by email.
The Dedibox console allows you to view and manage your Scaleway Dedibox products, billing information, support tickets and more. You can access the console at the address console.online.net.
