You should understand the difference between a password and a
passphrase. A password is used as a means of authentication to a remote
system. We do not use passwords for authentication

A passphrase encrypts your private key - locally on your system - and is
never sent to the server. Your ssh key for must be encrypted
with a passphrase.

You have a ssh key on

AAAAB3NzaC1yc2E...3xPTjzSWFVo1WoU9ctQ== sshedmak sshedmak csb

And it looks correctly installed. Check that matches your If
you still have problems, the complete output of 'ssh -v' would be useful
in diagnosing the problem.
