Please provide `ssh_known_hosts` for GH services in Actions

Solved! Go to Solution.

Dear GitHub,


would it be possible to set up Action worker nodes in a way that we already have the SSH Host Keys for GitHub services (repos, Gists) etc. available in either `/etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts` or `~/.ssh/known_hosts`? 


That would make workflows somewhat more straightforward when we e. g. need to fetch dependencies.


Also, it would be more secure than having to run `ssh-keyscan` and just accept whatever keys we find. You should be in the best position to always provide the correct and up-to-date keys 😉.

Neat idea.  I can see how this could help.  We'll take a look.
