What is the public URL for the Github public keys

You can get with:

curl https://github.com/<username>.keys

Replace <username> with the actual username of the GitHub user.

This is useful when you set login permission to other servers. Just save its output into ~/.ssh/authorized_keys. To append it to the end from the command line:

curl https://github.com/<username>.keys | tee -a ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

It can also be done using Github API

curl -i https://api.github.com/users/<username>/keys

For bit bucket you can use the following: (This call requires authentication.)

curl -i https://bitbucket.org/api/1.0/users/<accountname>/ssh-keys
