NiLuJe usbnet - question about keys location

README_FIRST says this:
"The pubkeys are stored, in OpenSSH format, in usbnet/etc/authorized_keys"

However, looking at the Kindle 5.1.2 from Linux, I see all *.key files in usbnet/etc/.
Should I see an "authorized_keys" directory there?

Thank you.

Thank you.
You should see an "authorized_keys" **file** with each line being the public key of each key-pair that is authorized access.

In the case of a Kindle -
Usually only the one public key of your own key-pair.

The "authorized_keys" file does not exist until you create it.

One way to do that is just copy the <whatever name you used for the pair>.pub to the name "authorized_keys".

and no - I don't have a picture.
