Authorized keys are the only kind of credential that users are commonly able to self-provision. Authorized keys configure access credentials and grant
access to servers and must be properly managed. The whole process is very simple and only takes a few minutes. With default configuration, anyone with
access to a user account on a server can configure additional SSH keys for it.
