Verify SSH public key uploaded is the same key locally

You can verify the fingerprint of the public key uploaded with the one displayed in your profile through the following ssh-keygen command run against your public key using the bash command line. 
You will need to change the path and the public key filename if you are not using the defaults.

ssh-keygen -l -E md5 -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
You can then compare the MD5 signature to the one in your profile.
