KiTTY and Pageant host fingerprint storage

Vlad G - Wed 24/10/2018 06:28:36 CEST +0200

There is a problem between Pageant and KiTTY. Just renaming it to putty.exe doesn't quite work. KiTTY currently stores all of the host fingerprints in \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\KiTTY\SshHostKeys

Meanwhile PuTTY stores them in \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys which means that there are problems with fingerprinting. The perfect example is using git to clones over ssh. Just using Pageant and KiTTY a persistent message shows up that states that the host fingerprint is unknown, even though it is saved. Connecting to the new host with he old PuTTY executable fixes this without a problem.

You may use Kageant, the agent for KiTTY.
