Comment (by dkocher):

 Like `ssh-copy-id`.

      ssh-copy-id is a script that uses ssh(1) to log into a remote machine
 (presumably using a login pass‐
      word, so password authentication should be enabled, unless you've
 done some clever use of multiple
      identities).  It assembles a list of one or more fingerprints (as
 described below) and tries to log in
      with each key, to see if any of them are already installed (of
 course, if you are not using
      ssh-agent(1) this may result in you being repeatedly prompted for
 pass-phrases).  It then assembles a
      list of those that failed to log in, and using ssh, enables logins
 with those keys on the remote
      server.  By default it adds the keys by appending them to the remote
 user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
      (creating the file, and directory, if necessary).  It is also capable
 of detecting if the remote system
      is a NetScreen, and using its ‘set ssh pka-dsa key ...’ command
