I am lazy at home and use password authentication for my home machines. I am ready to move to key based authentication. There are many options on the web on how to do this, including catting then sshing the key over, scping the key over directly, etc.
I am looking for the easiest and recommended way to copy a key over, hopefully there is a convenience wrapper somewhere in the Ubuntu ssh package?
I'm already aware on how to shut off password logins.
