This guide describes how to generate and use a private/public key pair to log in to a remote system with SSH using PuTTY. PuTTY is an SSH client that is available for Windows and Linux (although it is more common on Windows systems).

That way, there is no way for brute-force attacks to be successful, so your system is more secure.

On the other hand, as soon as you want to have your work printed, it’s another matter.
