SSH host and user certificates / certs support
The latest iOS version beta has certificates support. Though it’s still work in progress.
Click Contact Us to let us know if you are interested and we’ll provide you with the access to beta.
In the next months we are going to add the certificates support on all platforms. No exact ETA at the moment, we are just working on it now.

Very welcome addition, certificates is a must in my bussines.
Hi, how do I get access to the beta program?
I know, I'm part of the beta program already so I discovered that in the release notes :)
Super news for some of us.
Timothy Prime commented
Me too. I would like support for user certificates and for host certificates (think known_hosts).
I also absolutely _need_ this feature in order to use the client.
Hi! Could you please fix this? I _NEED_ OpenSSH Certificate support in order to use this client. It appears to me that "ADMIN" in this thread does not understand the question.
Being able to use SSH certificate would be very nice for large infrastructure.
Being able to use SSH Certificate with Termius, is a feature I'd loved to have (even if it is only on the Premium version) !
Roland Gersch commented
This would be an essential feature for me!

I tried a couple of different ways to do this, neither worked.
First I tried generating the key with termius, then copy-paste exporting the pubkey, signing it and copying back the id_rsa-cert.pub.
Then I generated a whole new key on my Mac, and exported the key.ppk, key.pub and key-cert.pub via iTunes. I imported the key into termius, but it does not try to use the certificate, but just the unsigned key.

casdev, please check this thread http://support.termius.com/knowledgebase/articles/660805-private-keys-import-via-itunes
may I also suggest to rename this idea to "ssh host and user certificates / certs support" so it can be better found by other users!
i also would like to know how to do this -> can't i present my ssh user ca signed certificate to my ssh servers with termius on IOS?
is essential from a professional user's perspective...
please add support for ssh user certificates (id_rsa-cert.pub) as well as storing ssh host certs / public ca keys in known_hosts file!

How can I import openssh keys signed with my CA server?
I have this keys:
