Check your ssh key passphrase

How can we check the passphrase of a private key?

Is it possible to do that using the following command:

ssh-keygen -y
  • If the input is the correct passphrase, it will show you the associated public key.
  • the wrong passphrase, it will display load failed.
  • If the key has no passphrase, it will not prompt you for a passphrase and will immediately show you the associated public key.
