Creating a Key Pair

Key pairs allow you to prove your identity electronically in AWS. Key pairs are region specific. You need a key pair for every region in which you intend to deploy. To create a key pair:
  1. In AWS, navigate to Services > EC2 > Key Pairs.
  2. Click Create Key Pair.
  3. Give the key pair a name, and click Create.
  4. Save the key-file. You will need the key-file if you need to ssh into any of the hosts.
