    Can't upload ed25519 private key

      Hi Experts.


      I get an error message when I try to upload an ed25519 private key to Outpost credential page.


      Error message is: The ssh key and passphrase do not match or the key is invalid


      As tideway on discovery appliance I generate key pair with:

      ssh-keygen -t ed25519


      I don't set a passphrase.


      I just want to see if it works.


      I download private key with WinSCP and I change Transfer Settings to Binary.

      And then I upload private key to Outpost Credential page


      I just make up a user name.


      Do you know what I am doing wrong? Please advice!


      [tideway@xxx-xxx-xxx ~]$ ssh-keygen -t ed25519

      Generating public/private ed25519 key pair.

      Enter file in which to save the key (/usr/tideway/.ssh/id_ed25519):

      Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):

      Enter same passphrase again:

      Your identification has been saved in /usr/tideway/.ssh/id_ed25519.

      Your public key has been saved in /usr/tideway/.ssh/id_ed25519.pub.

      The key fingerprint is:

      SHA256:??? ???@???

      The key's randomart image is:

      +--[ED25519 256]--+
