Commit d685d452 by Marin Jankovski

Merge branch 'consolidate_ssh_docs' into 'master'

Consolidate SSH docs

The two available SSH topics were quite short, so it made sense to combine them.

Includes fixes a few missing words, punctuation.

This means that everyone that works with the source code has a local copy of the complete repository.
In GitLab every project member that is not a guest (so reporters, developers and masters) can clone the repository to get a local copy.
After obtaining this local copy the user can upload the full repository anywhere, including another project under their control or another server.
The consequense is that you can't build access controls that prevent the intentional sharing of source code by users that have access to the source code.

Obviously you can take steps to prevent unintentional sharing and information destruction, this is why only some people are allowed to invite others and nobody can force push a protected branch.
# SSH
- [Deploy keys](deploy_keys.md)
- [SSH](ssh.md)
## SSH keys
An SSH key allows you to establish a secure connection between your
computer and GitLab.
Before generating an SSH key, check if your system already has one by
running `cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub`. If you see a long string starting with
`ssh-rsa` or `ssh-dsa`, you can skip the ssh-keygen step.
To generate a new SSH key, just open your terminal and use code below. The
ssh-keygen command prompts you for a location and filename to store the key
pair and for a password. When prompted for the location and filename, you
can press enter to use the default.
It is a best practice to use a password for an SSH key, but it is not
required and you can skip creating a password by pressing enter. Note that
the password you choose here can't be altered or retrieved.
```bash
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "$your_email"
```
Use the code below to show your public key.
```bash
cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
```
Copy-paste the key to the 'My SSH Keys' section under the 'SSH' tab in your
user profile. Please copy the complete key starting with `ssh-` and ending
with your username and host.
Use code below to copy your public key to the clipboard. Depending on your
OS you'll need to use a different command:
**Windows:**
```bash
clip < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
```
**Mac:**
```bash
pbcopy < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
```
**Linux (requires xclip):**
```bash
xclip -sel clip < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
```
## Deploy keys
Deploy keys allow read-only access to multiple projects with a single SSH
key.
This is really useful for cloning repositories to your Continuous
Integration (CI) server. By using deploy keys, you don't have to setup a
dummy user account.
If you are a project master or owner, you can add a deploy key in the
project settings under the section 'Deploy Keys'. Press the 'New Deploy
Key' button and upload a public SSH key. After this, the machine that uses
the corresponding private key has read-only access to the project.
You can't add the same deploy key twice with the 'New Deploy Key' option.
If you want to add the same key to another project, please enable it in the
list that says 'Deploy keys from projects available to you'. All the deploy
keys of all the projects you have access to are available. This project
access can happen through being a direct member of the projecti, or through
a group. See `def accessible_deploy_keys` in `app/models/user.rb` for more
information.
