Prepare the Private Key Before an Rsync Migration
You must prepare the Tenable Appliance
tns user's private key before using it during rsync migrations.
Before you begin:
Enable SSH access for your Tenable Appliance
tnsuser, as described in Enable SSH Access.
Note: Tenable recommends generating RSA keys 2048 bits or greater.
To prepare your tns user's private key for use during the migration:
- Confirm your private key is in OpenSSH .key format.
- Confirm the .key file begins with Begin RSA Private Key.
- Copy the the .key file to a directory on Tenable Core.
Run the following command to change the permissions of the .key file:chmod 400 <private_key>.key
Tenable Core updates the file permissions.
What to do next:
Perform your rsync migration, as described in Perform an Rsync Migration.
