 Quoting [ticket:4405 dan@…]:
 > If you've never connected to a host using public key auth before, but
 would like all future connections to use it.  You should be able to enable
 public key auth, point cyberduck to the priv/public keys.  When you make
 your first connection you would be prompted for your username and password
 and upon successful auth then cyberduck would append your public key to
 the authorized_keys and reconnect using public key auth. This saves the
 user all the headache of doing this themselves manually.  iSSH for the
 iPhone/iPad has similar functionality with a Transfer Public Key button.

 For now, the user has to manually configure this. Refer to
 [wiki:help/en/howto/sftp#Howtoconfigurepublickeyauthentication How to
 configure public key authentication?].
