createTime

If you used Amazon EC2 to create the key pair, this is the date and time when the key was created, in ISO 8601 date-time format, in the UTC time zone.

If you imported an existing key pair to Amazon EC2, this is the date and time the key was imported, in ISO 8601 date-time format, in the UTC time zone.

Type: Timestamp

Required: No

keyFingerprint

If you used CreateKeyPair to create the key pair:

  • For RSA key pairs, the key fingerprint is the SHA-1 digest of the DER encoded private key.

  • For ED25519 key pairs, the key fingerprint is the base64-encoded SHA-256 digest, which is the default for OpenSSH, starting with OpenSSH 6.8.

If you used ImportKeyPair to provide Amazon the public key:

  • For RSA key pairs, the key fingerprint is the MD5 public key fingerprint as specified in section 4 of RFC4716.

  • For ED25519 key pairs, the key fingerprint is the base64-encoded SHA-256 digest, which is the default for OpenSSH, starting with OpenSSH 6.8.
