    Hi Everyone,
                I'm going to migrate my existing SSH 2.3.0 running in AIX to OpenSSH_3.71p2.
    And I have some question to clarify.
    1. During installation of OpenSSH, still I can use the key I generate
    in my old SSH using my existing account? Are they compatible?
    2. Do I need to regenerate a new public key for the new installed
    openssh for my existing account if my old SSH doesn't work?
    3. In my SSH, I'm using authorization and identification file, still I
    can use it? In openssh, it using authorization_keys and no identification
    files. Any pointer what should I do?
    4. Any reference or documentation in migrating SSH to OpenSSH.
    Many thanks.
