Triton recommends RSA keys because the node-manta CLI programs work with RSA keys both locally and with the ssh agent. DSA keys will work only if the private key is on the same system as the CLI, and not password-protected.
An SSH key consists of a pair of files. One is the private key, which should never be shared with anyone. The other is the public key. The other file is a public key which allows you to log into the containers and VMs you provision. When you generate the keys, you will use ssh-keygen to store the keys in a safe location so you can bypass the login prompt when connecting to your instances.
Open safari and its preferences , click on general > click on drop down arrows of safari opens with and switch from new private window to new window .Close the window and quit safari , for the next time when safari is opened it will open as normal browsing window , the indication of it is it has not a smart dark search field.See this article Browse in private in Safari on Mac - Apple Support
To improve your privacy online, you should pair private browsing in Safari with a VPN to mask your IP address. You should also install antivirus software like MacKeeper to protect your Mac from spyware. Download MacKeeper now to get both of these features.
When you finish using private browsing, you can simply close the Safari window. You can then select File > New Window or use the keyboard shortcut Command + N to initiate a non-private browsing session.
Although Private Addresses greatly reduces user tracking and profiling, you could sometimes face connectivity-related issues on certain Wi-Fi networks. For example, some networks may be unable to identify your device as authorized to join. Or in rare cases, the network that allows you to join with a private address might block you from internet access. You can turn off the feature if that happens.
This is obviously aimed at the Apple Watch, but you can also use the private MAC address feature on iPhone and iPad as well, and given those devices are even more likely to be connecting to public wi-fi networks, it may be extra useful there.
But the files in the system folder are entirely managed by macOS. They're not even visible to you. Sometimes items in these directories can take up vast amounts of disk space. Thus, you might wonder whether it's safe to delete the contents of /private/var/folders or not.
The simplest way to find the /private/var folder is through the Finder Go to Folder menu. Press Cmd + Shift + G to bring up the Go to Folder box and enter /private/var/folders. A new Finder tab will open immediately.
A quick scan with OmniDiskSweeper shows that the size of /private/var/folders is about 1GB and that of /private/var is about 4GB. The size of these folders can vary between system, but shouldn't be too large.
You should not attempt to manually delete files from any of the /private/var directories, even if they're large. Doing so might damage core macOS files, corrupt document data, and prevent your Mac from booting or behaving as expected. You'd then be stuck reinstalling macOS from scratch.
To safely remove these files, quit all apps, shut down your Mac. When you reboot your Mac, you trigger the built-in cache clearing mechanisms. This deletes the unnecessary contents, caches, and temporary items in /tmp, /private/var, and /private/var/folders.
Uncovering your private browsing history is not as straightforward as looking up your normal browsing history. Read on to learn what private browsing really means, how to find your private browsing history, and how to delete it.
In iOS 14, Apple adds MAC randomization for all Wi-Fi connections, not just for scanning. For each unique SSID (wireless network), the device will choose a new randomized address and use that private address for the network (during beta-testing, this address was also randomized every 24 hours). The private addressing feature is enabled by default, but it can be disabled by the user or via network profiles pushed by administrators.
In some public access networks with usage subscriptions (monthly, yearly, metered), usage plans may be device-specific, where the MAC is used in an accounting workflow to track user data consumption. Those workflows may need a new approach to associate accounts to devices if the user has private addressing enabled (or if the private MAC ever changes for the SSID). In most cases, these operators will adjust to alternate forms of authentication (potentially in a Hotspot 2.0 workflow) whether usernames and passwords, certificates, apps, profiles on devices, or SIMs. Of course, they can combat this the manual way by showing users how to disable the feature and stick with the non-private address.
In connectivity troubleshooting workflows, the MAC address may be the only identifier for IT to get started in troubleshooting with product tools, logs, or packet captures. Obtaining MAC addresses the manual way for troubleshooting is not really convenient, but it may be the only option in some situations. In iOS 14, Apple actually made it easier to solve this problem by displaying the MAC address right in the connection utility. The beta behavior with daily randomization pretty much destroyed this workflow, but the final iOS 14 release made randomized MAC addresses visible. To find the MAC address, just open the Wi-Fi menu and click the network to see the private address.
In cases where public Wi-Fi has been used to commit online crimes, MAC addresses are a critical part of the forensic toolkit that can be used to correlate a device to a user. The laws for this type of forensic application varies by country, so it may not apply equally everywhere. Again, the beta implementation demolished this use case, while the iOS 14 release keeps it in play, as long as you perform forensics on both the actual and private addresses, just in case.
This conversation feels like a classic game of security versus ease of use. As privacy moves forward, the industry will need to adjust. You might say the MAC address was never meant to be used in all the ways we use it today. However, for over 20 years, the MAC address has been a reliable component of the wireless protocol, and 20 years of functionality have been built around it. Apple spared network operators a lot of pain by abandoning their beta implementation, but I think the MAC randomization paradigm will keep changing. It would be wise for network operators to think about (and start designing for) a world where MAC addresses are not just private, but are regularly rotating.
Your browser verifies a site's security certificate to confirm the site will protect your privacy while visiting it. If a certificate is not up to standard, this means your personal data might not be encrypted and therefore susceptible to online threats. In short, a "your connection is not private" error means just that: Your connection is not private, and the error isn't something to ignore.
In late September, though, Let's Encrypt saw its root certificate expire. Those relying on older devices to connect to the Internet, then, might have seen an increase in the number of "Your connection is not private" errors as they searched the web.
Before entering a website, your browser checks digital certificates of that website to ensure they're meeting requirements and will safeguard your private information, such as contact information, passwords, and payment methods, usually via encryption. Most often, the "your connection is not private" error lies in a site's Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate, which is required for sites running over HTTPS (connection security). If your browser can't verify an SSL certificate, it stops you from visiting the site by giving you the "your connection is not private" error message.
Incognito mode allows you to browse without saving your history or cache, which can help you analyze why your connection is not private. For instance, if you're still unable browse incognito then the fault is likely on the website having security issues. However, it could also be an issue in your browser's cache or an extension. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari are all browsers with incognito mode.
VPNs and antivirus software can sometimes be overly protective and may even block some SSL certificates or override your network. To see if they're the point of "your connection is not private" problem, simply disable the software temporarily and attempt to browse.

Public/private key authentication, as the name suggests, uses two special cryptographic files (called keys) to authenticate your login. The private key remains on your computer and should be kept safe from unauthorised access. The public key can be freely installed on remote systems. It doesn't matter if your public key gets stolen or lost. Because only you have the private key you can always regenerate the public key again from it. The key files are just plain text - nothing magical. You can open them in TextEdit.app if you are curious! 2b1af7f3a8
