Map SSH Private Key on a Putty Session

Mapping the SSH Private Key that was generated with Puttygen to your Putty session is quite simple, the following animation shows the steps you have to take.

Did you notice that a “passphrase” was requested as a security measure? If the “passphrase” is not configured at the moment of the keys generation, the risk is that anyone who manage to get a copy of the private key can make use of it.
