sshkey Invalid format

Deleted user Feb 01, 2018

How long does a newly installed sshkey for my account take to be active?

I generated the key with ssh-keygen but the ```ssh -T``` test is saying the key is an invalid format.  Is that the truth? Is the format really bad or is it that the system just hasn't registered the new ssh key yet?

grr.... it was the old key that was added to the ssh-agent that was running the background.  format was fine.  all is well.

If anyone comes across this after googling the same issue, while using your own generated keys in a pipeline:

The private key needs a newline the the end, otherwise it will be invalid.

Horrifying input validation, but this is unfortunately the case.
