How to use ssh keys on a USB drive

Remove the # to uncomment it, and change the path to that of your key on the USB drive

Oops, this should say:

and change the path to that of your key on the mounted sparse image.

If you reformat your USB flash drive to HFS than you can just put your keys on the USB drive, however it is obviously less effective for PC's. :)

How to use ssh keys on a USB drive

Easier than changing the configuration file one can just use the -i option e.g.

ssh -i /Volumes/FLASH/ssh\ keys/id_rsa  www.example.com
