authorized_keys vs authorized_keys2

What is the purpose of these two files? Or rather are they both needed?

 Thanks,

Al

Re: authorized_keys vs authorized_keys2

Older versions of openssh has differentiated files for authorized keys by version (authorizzed_keys for the version 1, authorized_keys2 for the version 2).

You can simply ignore authorized_keys2 as the newer openssh version use authorized_keys only.
