Topic "recreate a new private key"

Author Message


I have this problem.

I recently made a new public key to access server.
But I didn't make private key at same time.

Is it possible to re-create a private key from an old public key that I made last time?

Of course not. Public key is public. If anyone would be able to recreate private key out of it, it would not be private anymore.
