NAME
       ssh-import-id - retrieve one or more public keys from a public keyserver (Launchpad.net by
       default) and append them to the current user's authorized_keys file (or some other  speci-
       fied file)

SYNOPSIS
       ssh-import-id [options] USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]

OPTIONS
	-h | --help	   usage
	-o  | --output F    write output to file 'F' (default ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, use "-" for
       standard out)

DESCRIPTION
       This utility will securely contact a public keyserver (https://launchpad.net  by  default)
       and  retrieve  one  or  more  user's  public  keys, and append these to the current user's
       ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

       The system administrator can change the source URL used by ssh-import-id(1) by editing the
       configuration  file,  /etc/ssh/ssh_import_id, which is sourced to obtain the value of URL.
       By default, URL="https://launchpad.net/~%s/+sshkeys".  Note that this url really MUST be a
       secure,	https url with a valid, signed certificate or else your system will be vulnerable
       to man-in-the-middle attacks!  The "%s" will be populated  by  ssh-import-id(1)	with  the
       value(s) of USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n].
