Instead, OpenStack creates your VM with one SSH (Secure Shell) public key installed, and you can only log in using this SSH key pair. If you have used SSH keys before, the SSH public key can come from a key pair which you have already created on some other machine. In this case follow the instructions below for Importing an existing key pair. If you have not used SSH key pairs before or don't currently have a pair you want to use, you will need to create a key pair. If you are using a windows machine see the Generating SSH keys in Windows page, otherwise follow the Linux/Mac instructions. For more information on creating and managing your key pairs see the SSH Keys page in our wiki.
