       ssh-import-id - retrieve one or more public keys from a public keyserver ( by
       default) and append them to  the  current  user's  authorized_keys  file  (or  some  other
       specified file)


       ssh-import-id [options] USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n]


        -h | --help        usage
        -e  |  --environment   use the current environment (by default, all environment variables
       are cleaned before importing ids)
        -o | --output F    write output to file 'F' (default ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, use "-"  for
       standard out)


       This  utility  will securely contact a public keyserver ( by default)
       and retrieve one or more user's public keys,  and  append  these  to  the  current  user's
       ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

       The system administrator can change the source URL used by ssh-import-id(1) by editing the
       configuration file, /etc/ssh/ssh_import_id, which is sourced to obtain the value  of  URL.
       By default, URL="".  Note that this url really MUST be a
       secure, https url with a valid, signed certificate or else your system will be  vulnerable
       to  man-in-the-middle  attacks!   The  "%s" will be populated by ssh-import-id(1) with the
       value(s) of USER_ID_1 [USER_ID_2] ... [USER_ID_n].

       The -e option will be necessary if you need to use a proxy defined  in  $https_proxy,  for
