I'd recommend using

ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -f keyname
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

ed25519 is much better than RSA - more secure, shorter keys.

This is an excellent point. While researching this article, I was surprised to see that Bitbucket documentation uses RSA by default (April 2021). I'll likely change my first step to recommend ed25519 when I have a chance to do some edits.
