ssh-import-id(1)                            ssh-import                           ssh-import-id(1)

       ssh-import-id  -  retrieve one or more public keys from a public keyserver and append them
       to the current user's authorized_keys file (or some other specified file)

       ssh-import-id [options] USER_ID_1 [gh:USER_ID_2] ... [lp:USER_ID_n]

       ssh-import-id-lp USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]

       ssh-import-id-gh USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]

        -h | --help        usage
        -o | --output F    write output to file 'F' (default ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, use "-"  for
       standard out)
        -r | --remove      remove keys from authorized keys file 'F'
        -u | --useragent U append U to the user agent string
        PROTO:USER_ID      Protocol can be 'lp' for Launchpad.net, or 'gh' for Github.com

       This utility will securely contact a public keyserver and retrieve one or more user's pub‐
       lic keys, and append these to the current  user's  ~/.ssh/authorized_keys  file,  standard
       output or any other specified output file.

       User IDs can be prepended by a protocol:

        - lp: to use https://launchpad.net/~%s/+sshkeys
        - gh: to use https://api.github.com/users/%s/keys

       If  the  protocol is not explicitly specified, then ssh-import-id will read a URL variable
       string from /etc/ssh/ssh_import_id as installed by your package manager and configured  by
       your system administrator.  You can override this locally by exporting the string you want
       in a URL environment variable.  If all of these are empty, then the protocol is assumed to
       be "lp:", which was the original target implementation of this tool.

       Any  keys added will be "labled" with a trailing comment, "# ssh-import-id PROTO:USER_ID".
       Revoking keys will first look for lines in the  authorized  keys  file  ending  with  that
