Hi All,
Does anyone know of a way to use my ssh RSA key-pairs as my identity for Gemini?

As everyone else has said, Gemini uses TLS and not SSH. However, nobody seems to have mentioned youcould just sign a TLS certificate with your private key? You would simply use a command like thefollowing:

openssl req -x509 -sha256 -days 3650 -key privkey.pem -out mycert.crt

That would generate a certificate with your existing private key.

Just my two cents,Robert "khuxkm" Miles
