Which ssh keys to use?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


If I looked in my sshd_config I see that we now have four host keys:
HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key
HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key
HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ed25519_key

Each of these keys I can create as user keys as well. But which key
type is recommended? From the past I know that RSA was prefered over
DSA. But what about ECDSA or the new ED25519?

Shade and sweet water!
