Zoo SSH Keys Updated

As a proactive security measure, old SSH host keys for zoo.uvm.edu were replaced with newer ones on Wednesday, June 27 2012 at 12:07pm EDT.

SSH or SFTP applications (such as PuTTY, OpenSSH, SecureCRT, FileZilla, Adobe Contribute, Fetch, Fugu, etc.) attempting to make secure connections to Zoo may present an alert of the key change and display a "fingerprint" of the new keys.  Verifying these key fingerprints ensures you are communicating with the "real" Zoo server and not a foreign or malicious server masquerading as Zoo.

If the key fingerprints do not match, DO NOT submit your NetID password.

For 2048-bit RSA key verification, one or more of the following may be displayed:

25:a3:79:f6:7e:b6:d5:54:22:6b:2d:a3:3f:c7:f7:09
