When users request access to SSH servers, the common practice in most of the organizations is to create new key pairs. Some organizations even allow the end users to create and handle the keys independently. After creation, the keys are not managed at all. This leads to proliferation of keys, lack of centralized control, and even unauthorized access.
To organize and manage the keys, organizations have to first discover all the SSH keys present in the network and how they are being used.
