| Create SSH key pairs using putty to connect from Windows to HPC (5 mins)
SSH is a data transfer protocol that automatically encrypts all data exchanged between the two computers during your entire login session. Normally you would login to Helix and start an SSH session using your username and a password. SSH public key authentication provides much stronger "authentication" than a password, so it is more difficult for a hacker to gain access to your account by impersonating you from another computer.
