This domain serves an instance of akhttpd. Akhttpd serves an authorized_keys file for every GitHub user. To get the keys for a given user, simply append the username to the URL.

For example http://localhost:8080/username will return an authorized_keys file for the user username when called from common command-line clients. In the browser it will display an html page to view and copy the keys.

To install these keys on an ssh server, you could do something like:

curl -L localhost:8080/username > .ssh/authorized_keys

For convenience, this service also exposes a script to do this automatically. Using this script will overwrite any existing SSH Keys for your user. You can use it like:

curl -L localhost:8080/ | sh

Please refer to the GitHub repository for more information.
