I'm new to github and was trying out the git clone command, and when I try to run it , it gives me an error saying

Cloning into 'rugged'... Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '' to the list of known hosts. Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Thanks :)
