Good morning.
There is no need to install any additional software. You can use Git with your standard ssh configuration by creating a keypair locally and set the public key in your GitHub preferences.

docs.github.com/en/github/authenti...

After that create a „config“ file in your .ssh directory and add some information to it then git uses the ssh credentials with your newly created key.

The complete setup is described here devconnected.com/how-to-setup-ssh-...
