Recently I tried to playing around with Amazon EC2 server. After subscribing & setup my server, it will give you cert pem key to access the server instead of entering the key manually.

When I try to login, I got this error:
Permissions 0440 for ‘xxx.pem’ are too open.
It is recommended that your private key files are NOT accessible by others.
This private key will be ignored.
bad permissions: ignore key: xxx.pem

To fix this problem, just run this command:
chmod 0400 xxx.pem

The xxx.pem is your cert key file. After that try to login again. Should be fine. 🙂
