can you explain why in the end, there are two more ssh keys ?
Those are the public and private keys, I think. They are temporarily stored only.
”’Do you remember how when we run G Cloud, Compute, SSH, it generated a private and public key pair for us. It put the public key in this project metadata spot and it stored the private key on the file system that was running G Cloud which happened to be Cloud Shell in our case. Well that private key isn’t accessible to this Console and the Console does this a different way using temporary keys that it generates instead. It does still register the public key in this same place but because of this expires on tag, Google will automatically remove these in a short while. They last long enough for us to make the connection to the Instance but not long enough for them to become an issue of someone stealing these credentials and using them to mount an attack.”’
