Bring your own workspace SSH keys

SSH (secure shell) is a critical protocol for remote development. Both JetBrains IDEs and the VS Code editor use SSH as their remote development foundation. So, a big focus at Gitpod has been on improving performance and usability for connecting using SSH.

Which is why today we’re excited to announce that in Gitpod you can now upload your own public keys to access your workspace. In addition, we’ve also removed the requirement for a mandatory public key to be available when access Gitpod using SSH with an Access Token. With SSH public key upload you can now:

  1. Re-connect to workspaces without needing to go back to the Gitpod dashboard.
  2. Benefit from improved security when accessing your workspace with a private key.

See the announcement post for details on the use-cases, benefits and how to get started using your own key pair with Gitpod today.
