Cygwin -- File permissions for ssh


While configuring openssh for cygwin, ssh key authentication does not work, the key does not get accepted 


Make sure the .ssh directory and the authorized_keys files have required permissions and ownership:

chown <your_username>:none ~/
chmod g-w ~/
chmod 700 ~/.ssh/
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
