SSHFP Record

The SSHFP record contains fingerprints for public keys, used for Secure Shell (SSH). The SSHFP record is usually used with DNSSEC enabled domains. When a SSH client connects to a server it checks the corresponding SSHFP record. If the records fingerprint matches the servers, the server is legit and it is not a problem and it is safe to connect to it.

The SSHFP Record has the following look in your Control Panel:


This special record contains the following attributes:

Algorithm:
1. RSA;
2. DSA;
3 ECDSA.
These three kinds of algorithms are represented by an integer.

Fingerprint type:
1. SHA-1;
2. SHA-256.
The two kinds of fingerprints are represented by an integer.
