What is a ppk file and how do I open a ppk file?

Files created by PuTTYgen are known as PPK files. PPK files are PuTTY Private Key Files developed by Putty and they serve as storage for the private keys the program generated. These files are used to enable communication securely with another party having the corresponding public key. PPK files contain information about key file authentication which is why they usually serve as the computer’s marker that could allow the recognition and utilization of the files using the Putty software. The putty software is the main application using PPK files. This application is useful for SSH and Telnet. If users want to authenticate PPK files, all they need to do is choose Connection → SSH → Auth which can be found on the PuTTY Configuration menu. Then after that, they can click on Browse to enable the option called Private Key file for authentication. PPK files as well as the Putty software that created them can be opened on Windows, UNIX and MAC systems.
