Create a key-pair

kyle-no-MacBook:~ jenkins$ whoami
kyle-no-MacBook:~ jenkins$ ssh-keygen
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/Users/Shared/Jenkins/.ssh/id_rsa): 
Created directory '/Users/Shared/Jenkins/.ssh'.
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): 
Enter same passphrase again: 
Your identification has been saved in /Users/Shared/Jenkins/.ssh/id_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /Users/Shared/Jenkins/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
The key fingerprint is:
The key's randomart image is:
kyle-no-MacBook:~ jenkins$ ls -l .ssh
total 16
-rw-------  1 jenkins  jenkins  1679 Feb 28 11:55 id_rsa
-rw-r--r--  1 jenkins  jenkins   411 Feb 28 11:55 id_rsa.pub
kyle-no-MacBook:~ jenkins$ 

Put the public-key to the server

kyle-osxserver:.ssh kyle$ cat >> authorized_keys << EOF
